The best I've got so far for grain is that "Amon Amarth" contains an anagram of Amaranth.

A-places I can find that we haven't suggested for this clue so far, in case they inspire anyone:

Naomi, like Lois (2 Timothy 1:5), is one of those names I can never quite believe is in the Bible. For my part I was stuck on Star Trek's Naomi Wildman, but was pretty sure she wasn't relevant.
