The name Rebekah (sometimes also spelled Rebecca) has the specific meaning to tie firmly; to secure; to bind; to couple or join together; to ensnare. The name Rebekah has been around for centuries and is most commonly described as a 'biblical name' as the name is listed in the Bible. The biblical character of Rebekah is the wife of Isaac, who is the son of Abraham. Although the meaning of the name is rooted in a specific verb (to tie) and its variations, it has been widely debated as to the context and meaning of the name. Some scholars have suggested that it's meaning could go one step further than just the verb 'to tie'. (cont in comments)
The most standard translation of the name Rebecca (Rivkah) is a female calf. This interpretation is based on 1 Samuel 28:24, where "EGEL MARBEK" is understood as a fattened calf. MARBEK is derived from the same root as RIVKAH: RVK. Some have suggested that the name Rivkah is coming from the specific action of tying a calf, and in this sense SBG above could be right - but not in general tying or bonding, but it is much more likely that it just means a female calf.
