I like this name, but prefer Rebecca.

morning_glory Says:


Grammar alert - "it's heyday" should be "its heyday".

As for the name, I think it's lovely, if too frequently heard for my taste. Not so fond of Becky as a nn though - Bea's much sweeter IMO. Rebecca is even lovelier.

Personally I think Rebecca looks nicer, even though they are pronounced the same way.

My name!! I absolutely love it :)

Mackattack0927 Says:


This is my name. I often go by Bekah. Most people spell it wrong but it never bothered me.

ladybug99 Says:


I love this spelling! It gives you the classic Rebecca with a little bit of spunk :) If you want a unique spelling, this is the correct route. I think Bekah just looks so unique and cool.

Dspisces1407 Says:


It should not say that it is a variation of Rebecca, it should say that Rebecca is a variation of this spelling. This is technically the correct way and no offense to the spelling Rebecca because all variations of this name are absolutely beautiful! Love this name!!

sharonlee_22 Says:


I prefer this spelling also. I think it's beautiful.

jasminegarden Says:


this is my mum's name! :) a very beautiful name for a very beautiful woman, since childhood she has always stood out against all the Rebeccas & she is known as Bekah - my grandparents picked it for her from the bible because they were strong Christians - I love this name, I much prefer it to Rebecca (no deliberate offence to anyone that prefers that spelling)
