Gender: F Meaning of Beulah: "married" Origin of Beulah: Hebrew

Poor Beulah was a victim of racial stereotyping as a black maid's name in countless movies and TV, shows, all but obliterating the valid credentials of this biblical name. In the Bible, Beulah is a place, not a person, applied to the land of Israel by the prophet Isaiah and the land of Beulah has sometimes been considered a reference to heaven. It began to be used as a given name in England at the time of the Reformation and was used by the seventeenth century Puritans.

So yes, Beulah would challenge the most audacious baby namer--but maybe that audacious baby namer is you.
