Thanks for pointing this out. If the punctuation isn't exactly right in our interface, only the first origin and the last definition show and we only catch it if someone who knows a lot about the language catches the mistake.

"Bina" does not remotely mean "bee." "Deborah" (pronounced "Dvora" in Hebrew) means "bee." "Bina" means "intuition" and sometimes "wisdom." It's a feminine attribute of God in Jewish mysticism, and a not-uncommon, but not overly popular name in some Jewish communities.
