Why isn’t anyone named “Zepho” anymore?

Hey, expecting parents! Do you want a unique name for your boy, but you don’t want to just make something up? Consider these actual Biblical names taken from the Book of Chronicles! Hardly used at all! This is just from the first two chapters — there are nine chapters of geneologies, which may be why nobody reads Chronicles.

There aren’t too many girls’ names, I’m afraid, but how about Mehetabel, Matred, Mezahab, or Ephrathah?
