I love Miriam. It is a gorgeous name with sweet nicknames (Miri, Mira, Mimi) and a great history. Jewish legends tell us that when Pharaoh decreed all baby boys would be killed Miriam's parents seperated so they would not have a son and have to lose him. Miriam, then a small child, convinced her parents not too. Because they stayed together Moses was born. There is also a story that Miriam somehow provided a well for the Israelites to drink from while they were in the desert. This comes partly because right after the bible tells us Miriam died it tells us that the Israelites had no water to drink from, partially due to Miriam sounding the same as the same as the Hebrew word for water (Ma'yim). She is also said to have been the leader of the women in the camp.

Miriam also has wonderful stories in canon such as her watching over her baby brother in the reeds, and her singing and dancing with the women after the Israelites crossed the Red Sea.

This is a beautiful name with a wonderful namesake.

Moses' sister.

I think it's very pretty. It sounds light and... maybe like little bells? But that's just me.
