Biblical Baby Girl Names for the Modern Mom

Using the Bible for baby names may seem old fashioned to some, but any modern mom will love these beautiful biblical baby girl names.

When I found out my second baby was a girl, I never thought to look in the Bible for name ideas.

But now I wish I would have!

Often names like Rebekah, Ruth, and Mary come to mind when I think of biblical baby girl names and those seem so old-fashioned.

However, there are several girl names in the bible that aren’t quite as common and are perfect for the modern mom.

I went through every person or place referenced in the King James Version of the bible to find these beauties.
