The biblical girl names are a source of inspiration, and it’s sometimes difficult to choose from all these beautiful names. I especially love Deborah; maybe it’s because I bear the name, or I love the prophetess who was a trailblazer in her days. Whichever name you choose, I pray your little angel finds expression in God and fulfils her purpose.
