Theophoric names for women?

  I was intrigued by your mention of _All the Women of the Bible_ by
Dr. Herbert Lockyear, but since it's published by Zondervan, it probably
doesn't contain any information about Judith and other women of the
deuterocanonicals.  Do you know of a book that truly discusses _all_ the
women of the Bible, not just the ones in the protocanonicals?  Thanks.

Also, out of curiosity, I noticed that the name Michael is variously 
spelled Michal, Michel, Melchol.  Does this name mean "Who is like God?"
or "brook"?
