In no special order here are some options, some from DH’s relatives, others from acquaintances; some more on the Spanish side and others more Hebrew-based:
Flora
Cima
Reina
Edna
Sarina
Levana
Chera
Allegra
Matilda
Rosa
Perla

Hope this helps!

These names bring a smile to my face. My grandmother is mentioned and my deported aunt ah.
Adding Buena and Diamante and Allegra.

Brown please, what does PLata come from?

It means silver. I don’t currently know anyone with that name (I do for most of the others) but I remember hearing of older members in the community I grew up in with that name.

I would recommend against the name Plata today. It’s the Hebrew/Israeli term for a blech. 😂

And also the Hebrew term for a retainer that you keep in your mouth after you've had your braces off your teeth.
