My husband is particular to have biblical names, but I don't like the ones that are so common every family's got one--sara, rivka, rachel, leah, devorah, chana, esther. Sorry if I just offended 90% of you lol. Nothings wrong with those names, I just prefer names that are more unique...but they have to be biblical.
Any ideas?

The popularity and acceptability probably depends on your crowd and I'm not sure if you mean just from Chumash as I am going to list some from Navi as well: Machla, Tirtzah, Efrat, Avigayil, Elisheva, Tamar, Yael, Batsheva, Yehudit, Yocheved, Idit, Noa, Basya, Tzipporah, Penina, Chagit, Dena, Hadasah, Michal, Tzivia, Shulamit, etc.

I've been dying to use Noa for a girl. Beautiful name, not so common. She was one of the daughters of Tzlafchad.

My middle name is Tirtzah. Its not common at all in my circles. And I'm called by my first name but I LOVE the name Tirtzah. It would be nice to be called by my middle name. My husband is the only one who really calls me your that name.

Several not yet mentioned:
Avishag - famous for her beauty, a concubine of King David.
Tzruyah - sister of David, the mother of Yoav, Avishay and Asael - all brave warriors.
Yehosheva - a real heroine who is not acknowledged nearly enough. She saved her nephew Yoash from his murderous grandmother Athalia by hiding him in the Mikdash, thus enabling the perpetuation of malchut Beit David in the kingdom of Yehuda.
Achinoam - one of David's first wives

Interestingly, you see it less in frum society, but Noa is one if the most common girls names in Israel. My niece had three Noas in her class, which is considered fairly typical.
