Zillpha is a gem of a biblical name. While there is really no determined meaning, it isn’t without any legacy. When spelled as Zilpha, two historical figures come to mind. One being, Zilpha Franklin, who was the first woman to be CIO of the Federal Security Agency, and Zilpha Elaw, an African-American preacher who has been cited as one of the first outspoken black women in the United States. By naming your little one Zillpha, you allow your child to be a vessel of all that your faith stands for and the strength of the women who came before. There’s no way baby can lose.
