Comments for RIVKA:

I think that the name Rivka is a lovely name. I am called Rebecca and when I heard that Rivka was another version of it I decided to call my first girl child it.

Pronounced reev-kah.

An alternative spelling of the name Rivka is "Rivkah" as it is with many names and words transliterated from Hebrew in to English if the word ends in ה it is usually spelled with an "h" which is either silent or barely audible.

I have a friend named "Rivkah" and she pronounces it riv-ka even though it is spelled with an h at the end. This name is awesome!

I believe a nice variant of this name would be Rivqah, which was the name of a character in a book I've been reading. In the book Rivqah is the mother of Axis. The book is called The Wayfarer Redemption by Sara Douglass. It's a great read!

In The Devil's Arithmetic (a story about Jews in a concentration camp during the Holocaust), there's a character named Rivka. She teaches Chaya, the story's protagonist, how to survive in a concentration camp. At the very end of the story, it is revealed that she is Hannah's Aunt Eva.

I wish I could name my kid Rivka, but then again, I'm not Jewish, so that would be a bit strange. A beautiful name. Main character in the novel "Letters from Rifka" (I highly recommend it).
