Comments for ORPAH:

I believe that this was the original spelling of Oprah Winfrey's name. I heard that it was her mother who had mis-spelled it by mistake, but the changed name stuck.

Oprah Winfrey was supposed to be named this but the nurse spelled it wrong or something like that and it just stayed that way!

The name comes from the Hebrew word "oref", meaning the back of the head, because she turned her back on Neomy, while Ruth stayed.

I think this is a lot prettier than Oprah, and Oprah is just completely iconic now and a sort of questionable name choice.
