wished for child
If trendy names don’t interest you, Miriam could be just what you’re looking for. It’s a historical Hebrew name and the oldest-known version of Mary. In the Bible, Miriam was a heroine who, as the sister of Moses, cleverly saved his life when he was a baby by hiding him in a basket among the rushes at the river's edge for the Pharaoh's daughter to find. Another clever female with that name is actress Miriam Shor, who plays the feisty Diana on “Younger.”
