Baby #4

I am due in the spring with baby #4 and am looking for suggestions for if this one is a girl!

I look for underused (in the US) biblically inspired/biblically suggestive/meaningful names, even where not directly biblical.

One extra stipulation: I know it’s silly of me but I think it would be so neat to use each of the letters from the alphabet as the beginning letters in my children’s first & middle names (I know realistically to do this I’d have to have 13 kids or give some of my kids more than 2 names). It’s obviously very unnecessary and not priority but I really enjoy the balance it creates aesthetically so I like to create lists just in case (it seems overwhelming to me but my grandmother did have 13 children!)

Bearing this in mind, what girl names would you suggest to go with brothers A.lphonse and O.swin, and sister G.wyniveth?

Middles start with E, M, and L so the remaining letters would be:

B
C
D
F
H
I
J
K
N
P
Q
S
T
U
V
X
Y
Z

I excluded R and W as well because my husband is 100% set on the next boy’s name, which would have the initials R.W.

Some of my ideas:

Beatrix
Bluebell
Cordelia
Cassaleia
Dasha
Hadasha
Iris
Pernina
Peri
Petunia
Primrose
Quillevi
Quillvera
Sephora
Starling
Ume
Veralie
Valilea/Valalie/Valilee
Xandi/Xandie
Xyla
Xenia
Zosia

Thank you! A number of the ones you listed are also on my longer lists! [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f] is growing on me but [name_m]Cornelius[/name_m] is already my “C” boy’s name (or [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] as a middle!) [name_f]Casiphia[/name_f] is new to me!

I actually came up with Quillvera!

The idea is that quill can mean “scribe”/ a quill was a writing instrument + [name_f]Vera[/name_f] means faith so I thought it was a good portrayal of biblical principles (i.e. that people were created to walk and live in intimate communion with their Creator and serve as His “instruments” whereby His goodness/right ways/mercifulness/justice/lovingkindness/truth are effectively exemplified and carried out in action by word and deed through firm trust in and loyalty to Him.)

[name_m]Hence[/name_m], the [name_u]Christian[/name_u] is His “writing instrument of faith” whereby the excellence of His ways (shown in His Word) thrive by faith. By faith, we are filled with His words and they stain the pages of our lives and reflect His presence in our stories, which are all a part of history (His story.)
