Trying to Find a New First Name

I am and have been looking for a new name for a while now. I am for these reasons:

  • My name doesn't really suit me at all
  • Name meanings are important to me, and my name has a really weird meaning that I don't like
  • I don't like the sound of my name
  • I changed a lot, and I'd like a new name

 

A little about me:

I am extremely quiet and don't fight back. I have been called a "quiet little mouse" many times.

I knit a lot and am good at making things with my hands.

I'm also a Christian and would love a name that has a Christian meaning, although it doesn't need to have one.

I wanted to ask this here because I can never decide on a name. It feels like I don't have one sometimes, because I'm so indecisive about choosing one.

Any suggestions? What name do you guys think would suit me?

My advice is to forget about "meaning" since by and large the so-called meanings are nonsense. Instead perhaps you might want to think about someone or something that is very meaningful to you, and use that as a jumping off place for developing a list of candidates.

Can you tell us some names that you have considered, and what you liked (or didn't) about them?

Abigail, Adah, Bethany, Eva, Faith, Grace, Hannah, Hope, Joanna (nn Jo), Julia, Leah, Lillian, Lois, Selah, Sarah (nn Sadie), Tabitha, Victoria

But like others have said, it's hard to make suggestions when I don't have more to go on.
