How do you say Deborah in Hebrew?
The Hebrew name is spelled: דְבוֹרָה (Pron. D'Vo-rAH, the accent is on the last syllable.) The same Hebrew spelling also means bee.
Debora is an Italian equivalent of 'Deborah'. Both names trace their origins back to the ancient civilization of Hebrew speakers. Specifically, the name occurs in the Old Testament Book of Judges, where Deborah is introduced as a heroine of and a prophetess for her people. The name is Hebrew for 'bee'.
That is the result of Anglicisation of non-English words which happens to most languages to make it easier for English speakers to say the word. The Hebrew word for Jew is 'Yehudi'. Hebrew examples are: Yisrael = Israel Yerushalayim = Jerusalem D'vorah = Deborah or Debra Other examples: Danmark = Denmark München = Munich Bucureşti = Bucharest Ó Súilleabháin = O'Sullivan
