JARBAC - What is the name of cain's wife?

JOEL - The scriptures are silent as to the name of Cain's wife although her existance is mentioned in the Bible:

"And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch."(Gen 4:16-17)

According to the Book of Moses Cain married his niece:

"And it came to pass that Cain took one of his brothers’ daughters to wife, and they loved Satan more than God." (Moses 5:28)

Her name is never given, but if the context of the above scripture is taken into consideration it was probably one of Abel's daughters. (See Moses 5: 25 - 29).
