Pop Culture References for the Name Rebekah

Rebekah Mikaelson, character on TV's "The Vampire Diaries"

From the original Hebrew 'Ribkah', possible meanings are "bound with rope" "ensnarer", "a noose".
From the Arabic, rabqat, "a tie-rope for animals," suggests that as a name it means the beauty by means men are snared or bound.
The root is found in Hebrew only in the noun meaning "stall" in the phrase "fatted calf" or "calf of the stall", and in view of the meaning of names like Rachel and Eglah the name Rebekah might well mean a "tied-up calf or lamb" one peculiarly choice and fat, suggesting that as a name it refers to her being a prime choice as a wife.
