The name of Moses' mother Jacabed is the first one that comes to mind. The following
others come from Herbert Lockyear's All the Women of the Bible:
    Jedida(h): 2 Kings 22:1-2
    Jehoaddan: 2 Kings 14:2; 2 Chronicles 25:1
    Jehosheba/Jehoshabeath: 2 Kings 11:2; 2 Chronicles 22:11
    Joanna: Luke 8:1-3; 23:55; 24:10

There are also sveral women who have "el" in their name for elohim: such as David's
wife Michael.
