Perhaps Eve or Nevaeh pronounced "navaya" for heaven backwards. Or faith would be nice. Or rain which means blessing or miracle from above.

I'm looking for a name for our second child. We like Biblical names, or ones that have a strong or significant (preferably spiritual) meaning. our first son is Gideon Lee. If we have a boy we like Gabriel, Nathaniel or Judah. But we are stumped on girls names!!! Help!

Bethel means house of God. She could be called Beth for short.
Mercy is not necessarily a biblical name, but could definitely be used as one!
