Who was the Job's wife?

Is there any indication in Bible or in Midrash on this?

Thanks
Alex

Are you simply asking if a name was ever recorded? To me, the question is no different from "Who was Job?"

The wife of Job is not mentioned with a name.
She is mentioned in a bad light, speaking foolish against God.
Seems that she assisted to all the Job's trials.
Job's children die and later he had new children.
A new wife is not mentioned. We may suppose that he had the same wife later.

There are more comments about her here:

Jobs wife is device like Watson in Sherlock Holmes -  ordinary, like us. Job was more like Sherlock - extraordinary.

We can all relate to Watson easily, but Sherlock is harder to relate to.

Like the majority of mankind, Job's wife missed the point, like Watson fails to observe.

Job's wife got angry at God and felt that job should also be angry. He reaction is typical of most people in the world today.

In a way she represents emotion overiding faith. We can relate to jobs wife, but job is harder to relate to.

This is the most useful information I can give you in answer to your question.
