I woman I went to HS with had her first baby yesterday. It is a girl
I had never heard it before but my friend told me she had. The woman's name is Sche.kina and she has a sister Hada.ssah so there are no lack of unusual names in that family.
Have you heard of La.elle before?
-auntie-:Lael is an Old Testement name as is Hadassah (it's Queen Esther's hebrew name)
Wait -- does she actually spell those names with a period in the middle, or is that your addition to show pronunciation?
She gets a pass on Laelle -- as stated before, it's a biblical name -- but La.elle is weird.

The periods are there for Googling purposes.
megemoney:Is there a particular ethnic background for these names?
They're all Hebrew. But I'm Protestant and love Hadassah. I've known a little girl (guess she'd be an adult now) named Shekinah. There is a Christian pop band named Shekinah. Lael was a man in the Bible. I wouldn't judge an ethnicity or religion from these names but I'd guess they'd take their religion seriously since they're all in one family.
