I love these!

Gideon
Cain --- I prefer Kane though
Emmanuel --- Especially asa a middle name
Isaias
Nekoda ---- Ooh.. Don't think I have seen this one before. Going on my list. Thanks!

Adalia
Delilah
Sarai


Uriah and Zillah are the only ones I DISlike. Uriah is sadly close to urine and urea and Zillah morphs too easily into Godzilla.

Great list!

Boys:
Gideon -- Nice name
Simeon -- I prefer Simon
Tobias / Tobiah -- Fine
Abel -- Fine, though it makes me think of the word "Able"
Azriel -- The Angel of Death? The name sounds cool, but I would never use it.
Benaiah -- I prefer Benjamin, but this isn't bad
Cain -- Erm.... no..
Cainan -- Same with Cain. I'm all for Biblical names, but not that ones that were the *bad* examples
Emmanuel -- Fine
Ezra -- Fine
Isaias -- I think I prefer just Isaiah
Malachi -- Love it
Matthaios -- I prefer Matthias or Matthew, I think.
Matthan -- Not for me, but doesn't sound bad
Nekoda -- Dislike
Uriah -- Makes me think of Urine. =/

Girls:
Mara -- fine
Abilene -- fine
Adalia -- fine
Amariah -- This is a male name, and I like it on a boy
Delilah -- It's a pretty name, but she was a "bad guy"
Eden - Love it
Micaiah -- Also a male name, but I dislike it either way
Seraiah -- Boy name again. Sarah and Sariah are the female equivalents, and I like them.
Sarai -- Pretty
Zillah -- Sounds fine

I only liked 2 names, one boy, one girl.

Tobias- Like it and might actually use it, I'm very picky with boy names.

Sarai- Like it but probably wouldn't use it because it's a friends name.

Oh and I never heard of Nekoda before either and I really like it.

I am going to add another to the boys list... CYRUS. I love that name.

Just for the record I would probably never use any of these names (esp the bad guy ones) but I just love how they all sound.
