User comments for Deborah (Meaning / History Only)

Deborah, in the Hebrew, means 'the bee', in the sense of orderly motion from its systematic instincts. The root word is dabar, which means, 'to arrange'; used figuratively of words, 'to speak'.

Debra is a good alternate spelling of the name, but it exists only as a Greco-Roman alteration. The ending -ah on Deborah is typical of feminine names in Hebrew as it often denotes a word's femininity. For example, Sarah, Hannah, Oholibamah, Hadassah, etc. Are all feminine names, and in some cases, feminine words.

The name Deborah doesn't mean bee. Its meaning comes from world maybe a spoken world probably the name of the bee comes after this significance

Personally, I LOVE my name. I've always pronounced it as Deb-o-rah, but my Jewish friends always call me De-Vor-a. I like that very much. And I like bees and honey. Happy to share my name with such industrious little beings.

The meaning of the name is actually a good one because bees produce honey and honey is sweet, medicinal and nourishing to humanity.
