Thanks for posting to the link of names, I checked a few out and found some more I liked:
Sela, Zara, even Aliyah (though Aliyah might be considered trendy now).
Out of your husband's names, I like Miriam the best, mainly b/c I hear Leah, Abigail, and Hannah a lot. I don't hear Leila, but it is similar to Lily and the like. I'm afraid Noa will just be associated with "THE" Noah, as I just hear it and automatically think of the ark. It's too much associated with a man for my to consider it a girl's name.
I LOVE Aviva, that is probably my favorite!
BTW, I don't think Keziah has as strong of a slave history as something like Jemima. I grew up in the south and have never heard that. I would definitely associate Jemima with slavery but not Keziah. But I can definitely understand the turn off if you associate it with that.

Good luck narrowing down the field. Let us know when you have a few favorites put together.
