Possibly Sivah or Sinah.

Does either name have a Biblical resonance?

I reckon you've got it, horselydown86   - Sinah.

There are lots of them in the area this record came from. No idea where the name comes from though - it isn't typically Welsh.

I see that it's in my part of Wales too  :)  I had a 6 x great grandmother called Sinah.  She lived in the next township to Crogeniddon.

I think it's a lovely name.

I love that part of Wales. My Dad and his family came from that area and we visited relatives a lot when i was growing up. In my early 20s, I walked along the entire Offa's Dyke long distance path (camping all the way) which allowed me to experience a lot of the area in a unique way.

Googling Sinah seems to indicate that its origins are Irish Gaelic and meaning 'gift of god' or 'god is gracious'. I suspect the former was the original meaning as the latter seems unsuitable for a girl's forename.

There is an area of Hayling Island in Hampshire on the south coast called Sinah which I find a little bizarre considering it's apparently a female forename.   ???

the second letter and the dot above is the same as the i in Richard, which is why I favour Sinah.  Also, note the distinctive r - not in her name.
