TRYPHENA and TRYPHOSA

Tryphena — From the Greek name Τρυφαινα (Tryphaina), derived from Greek τρυφη (tryphe) meaning "softness, delicacy."

Tryphosa — From the same Greek root word, meaning "delicate or dainty one," alternately, “thrice shining one,” or, more probably, “luxuriant.”

PHOEBE

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae. I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.
