Jezebel is a girl's name of Hebrew origin whose meaning is uncertain. Possibly a Phoenician name, some theories include "Baal exalts" or "unexalted," "without cohabitation" or "unmarried," and "chaste." In the Hebrew Bible, Jezebel is the daughter of King Ethbaal and the queen of Israel condemned by God. Jezebel is known for convincing her husband, King Ahab, and his followers to worship the Tyrian nature god Baal. In recent decades, this name has made a resurgence in the baby name charts due to the rise of -bel ending names such as Anabel and Mabel. Whether you like the name's meaning, religious story, or even its now trendy ending, Jezebel would be a lovely choice for baby.
