Female name of Hebrew origin. Zilpah was one of Jacob's wives (she was one of Leah's handmaids). Zilpha is likely a variation of this name. Women named Zilpha are likely to possess the endearing qualities of empathy, intelligence, curiosity, and creativity. They are also likely to be especially fond of children, animals, and music. Don't expect women with this name to be glamorous fashionistas, but rather to express their beauty in more subtle ways.
My great-grandmother was named Zilpha.
