Hebrew girl's names

Please suggest some? Preferably unique ones.

[name_f]Sela[/name_f] or [name_f]Selah[/name_f] was my first thought. [name_f]Sela[/name_f] is topping my list :slight_smile:
I love Seffora, too, but I guess that Latin. [name_f]Zipporah[/name_f] is a little much for me, though.

[name_f]Aviva[/name_f]
[name_f]Ayelet[/name_f]
Livna
Meira
[name_f]Tirzah[/name_f]

[name_f]Aviva[/name_f] is my favorite Hebrew girls’ name; I know a teenage [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] and have always thought her name practically radiates fun.

I’m also partial to [name_f]Batya[/name_f], [name_f]Chaya[/name_f], [name_f]Nira[/name_f], and [name_f]Ophira[/name_f].

[name_m]Just[/name_m] how unique to you want?

Tzipporah
[name_f]Shifra[/name_f]
Shalshelet
[name_u]Adi[/name_u]
Saffir
Silan
[name_u]Hadar[/name_u]
Tzviah
[name_f]Marah[/name_f]

Are you Jewish and looking for something usable as both a secular and Jewish name? Are you looking for something biblical or modern? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you just want to find a Hebrew name that sounds good to you for whatever reason? There’s a pretty big difference between what mainstream Americans find to be “unique Hebrew names” and what Jews tend to experience as unique or uncommon.

For example, [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] or [name_f]Shira[/name_f] or [name_f]Rivka[/name_f] are extremely typical to most Jews but extremely unique to pretty much everyone else.

FTR, the only use i know of for Silan in Hebrew is in reference to date syrup - for cooking, not as a name.

Chavaleh or [name_f]Elisheva[/name_f]?

Spring13, I would have said the same about Silan until I encountered a little girl with the name. There’s at least one out there!
