User comments for Debra (Meaning / History Only)

Debra/Deborah/Dvora not only means "honeybee" in Hebrew, the word is derived from the verb root דבﬧ "daber" meaning, 'to speak'. Appropriate both for the sound of bees and a powerful Biblical woman who did so as a calling and a career.

Debra is a variant of Deborah, not a short form. [noted -ed]
