Devorah is an ancient girl’s name with Hebrew origins meaning “bee.” This name features in the Bible and was the name of a great prophet and judge who helped produce an army and effect a major victory against the Canaanites. When Anglicized Devorah becomes the perhaps more common Deborah or Debbie. Though Devorah may not be as popular as its variations, sometimes bringing the original back for another spin is more trendy. Though still outside the top 1,000, Devorah has gradually risen up the charts since the 1940s.
