Biblical sounding names that aren’t necessarily in the Bible

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! I’m looking for biblical sounding names that aren’t necessarily in the Bible. Not looking for names like “Jonah” “Elijah” “Caleb” so forth. More looking for names with a biblical meaning like “Harvest” “Shepherd” “Honor”
