A feminine name of Hebrew origin, Debra means “bee” and is the short form of Deborah. This Biblical title can be found in the Old Testament Book of Judges. Deborah was a heroine and prophetess and the only female judge mentioned in the Bible. The shortened-down version, Debra, revived this name in the 1950s before slipping out of the charts after the ‘70s. However, Debra is making a much-celebrated comeback! With its origin stemming from a powerful female figure and its adorable relation to the persevering bee, Baby Debra will fashion this trendy name with dignity.
