One Deborah was the nurse of Rebecca, while the other was a prophetess, judge, and military leader who led the Israelites to victory against the Canaanites. In the United States, the name was most popular from 1950 to 1970, ranking among the 20 most popular names for girls. The name Deborah is associated with several positive qualities, such as leadership, strength, and victory. It is also symbolic in its association with the bee, representing industry, wisdom, and community. Variants of the name can be found across different languages and cultures, including Debra (English), Debbora (Biblical Greek and Biblical Latin), and Débora, Déborah (French). This versatile name has a rich history and carries a meaning that transcends its Hebrew origins.
