Comments (Famous Bearer Only)

I've always admired my namesake, the Biblical Deborah. She was a Judge in the Old Testament, which was tantamount to being designated as a King. Women were not held in any status during that time, so for her to hold such a status was unusual. She was also a prophetess, which means God spoke to her and all of Israel acknowledged that fact. She was a brave woman too, leading the men to war when they were afraid to do so. I cannot think of anyone who better emulates a strong woman then her and I'm honoured to be named for her.
