FYI, Zipporah is said how it sounds! I love this name, Moses married Zipporah in The Bible.

Once I was messing around with syllables and sounds, and I ended up with the name Ziphora. Not long after, I discovered the name Zipporah.

I really love the name Zipporah. An adorable nickname for Zipporah could be Zipper. Or not! It reminds me of a practical, yet beautiful woman. Very exotic. More parents should consider using this name!

This name is truly beautiful.

If you've seen Prince of Egypt, you know she's quite salty. They portrayed her to match the sound of her name well. Zipporah sounds like a salty woman. She is, too. We get to read about a fight she has with Moses in Exodus.

I really like this name. It sounds exotic and beautiful. I also like that it's the name of Moses's wife.

The Greek variant of this name is Sephora. This version was used for the Zipporah character in epic film "The Ten Commandments" by Cecil B. DeMille.

I've seen this name spelled like it's pronounced (Tsiporah), and a nickname for that would be Tippie.

I love this name. It's really unique! :DD I wish this was my name.

The name is very beautiful. I love it and I am considering naming my daughter that. It's wonderful and makes me feel good when I hear it and/or think about it. The only problem is the meaning which I feel should be the primary reason a name is chosen. It means bird but the name sounds so fine I cant help but to consider.

A beautiful, exotic name that no one will have trouble pronouncing. It's perfect. :)

We used Zipporah for the middle name of our third daughter. In some respects, I wish we had made it her first name. It is very distinctive, has a beautiful sound, and comes with a distinguished pedigree, given that Zipporah was the name of Moses' wife.

The chief downside I can see is the potential for nickname abuse, with nicknames like Zippy or Zipper. It is a beautiful name, though.

I believe this is a very odd and eccentric name, perhaps a little too much so for general usage, although I find it has some intriguing qualities. When I think of this name, it reminds me of an elaborate bird of paradise, or a peacock, or some other fantastically and beautifully-plumaged, exotic fowl. :)

I love this name a lot! I plan on using this as a name for my future daughter, using the Greek spelling and pronunciation, Sephora, or Sefora... I think this name is very pretty and exotic, and also very unique.

I have found that everyone either loves or hates this name. No medium here. Personally I love it.
-- rccp12  12/27/2010
I love this name! It's so beautiful and underused.
-- bananarama  5/13/2011
Makes me think of Zeppelins.
-- SEC908  11/30/2012
The root of this word/name |tsaphar| means "to skip about." The native ear would have heard this name as Skipper, their word for bird.
