• fresh biblical baby names •

hello everyone!

I’m looking for some inspiration for a new list I’m creating in my notes, and I thought this is the perfect place to go ~

I’m looking for biblical names that aren’t David, John or Mary (though those are lovely!)

what I have so far 🍃

OMG same here. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband’s cousin is named [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] but we’re okay with having duplicate names. I also was never interested in [name_u]Milo[/name_u] until my husband told me it was a biblical name :slight_smile:
