Having a girl?
Consider Abigail. This Hebrew names means "My father is joy or cause of joy" and is first found in 1 Samuel 25:2-3, 39. After her husband Nabal died, the widow Abigail became King David's wife.

Having a boy?
What about Benjamin? Meaning "Son of my right hand and fortunate," this is another Hebrew name. Benjamin is also the name of the child that Rachel bore Jacob before dying; he later became leader of one of the twelve tribes of Israel. You can find a mention of Benjamin in Genesis 35:18.
