This is the Irish form of Deborah from the Bible.

How exactly is it a form of Deborah? Is it just that it's usually anglicised to Deborah?

Saint Gobnait is also the patron saint of Irish beekeepers, and the name Deborah means "honey bee", so Gobnait is sometimes anglicized as Deborah because of the association.
