- I like the sound of it and its a very old name and not so much used, the REBECCAH or REBEKKAH varieties are nice to but I prefer c's.
- for a girl, i lkie the name rebecca. this is my girlfriends name, and she is very sexy.
- It means "Ensnarling" in Hebrew, it's old fashion and the odds are that there won't be more than one in a classroom at a time. (With exception of my Girl Scout troop, there where three of us with that name, all spelled the same, and two of us had last names that started with "B")
Rebecca is the English form of the Hebrew/Aramaic name pronounced like Rivkah. It comes from a word meaning "To tie; bind." It is sometimes purported to mean "beautiful; alluring" etc., This is probably an implied meaning, stemming from the fact that fattened animals prepared for slaughter were often tied and bound, and hence voluptuous, beautiful, desirable.
