The Votes Are In!

And the winner is...Wren! Thanks for your votes. My mom told me that Clover sounds like something you'd name a cow and two people mentioned that they would spell Ester with an h (Esther). I think we'll work some more on our list and throw it out to you all again as we get closer to our referral. For now, all I can say for sure is that Clover and Juniper are out.

Good question! Yes, I have, though there aren't many on the name lists out there. If you find any that you like, let us know!

Susan:
This is the best list I have found. Apparently Ethiopians use quite a few biblical names, including Rebekka / Rebecca, Rahel / Rachel, Gelila / Delilah, Sara / Sarah, etc. I sort of like Candace, which was an Ethiopian Queen's name, and Rebecca, among others.
There is another, similar list at:

Some of the spellings vary between the two lists.
