Women's "Hebrew" names #lithuania

People sometimes ask on this list about what they think is a female
Hebrew name. I have noticed that most of these names are not in Hebrew.
While there are not very many biblical women's names, it seems East
European Jews used only few of the women's names the bible offers. It
was a lot more important for sons to have Hebrew names than for
daughters.
