This is what I found on my name, in the website thinkbabynames.com, doing a Google search.

  1. Deborah is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin menaing bee.
  2. In the Bible, Deborah was a prophetess who guided the Israelite forces under Barak to victory over the Canaanites led by Sisera.
  3. Deborah was a popular name in USA in the 50s, making it the second most popular name.

In spite of this, I got my name from ex-Miss Universe Deborah Carthy-Deu (1985), who won the title two years before I was born. My father gave me the name, first, because my mom got to name my older sister; and second, because he was infatuated with her, making jokes about her being his girlfirend.
