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.

Paul, writing to the believers in Rome (Romans 16:1-2)
