Rebecca

to bind
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 450
One of the most important women in the Bible, Rebecca means “to bind" or "to snare” in Hebrew, a fitting description since she tricked her elderly husband, Isaac, into choosing their younger son, Jacob, and not their older son, Esau, to lead the future tribes of Israel. Besides being smart, she was considered beautiful and dynamic. Though it has always been a common Jewish name, Americans didn’t begin calling their daughters by this baby name until the 1600s, when the Puritans introduced it to the US; it was particularly popular during the 1970s. It’s the name of the happy/not happy mom on the much-watched TV drama “This Is Us.”
