You don't have to tell us your first name if you don't want to...but I was wondering what your first name means?

My name is Rebekah, it is Hebrew and means full of beauty

My name is Deborah (but I go by Debbie). I just looked it up and this is what it says "The name Deborah comes from the root dabar, meaning to speak or pronounce. It's also where the phrase "Word of God" comes from, and is identical to the word Deborah, meaning bee."

I did know about it meaning bee, but I did not know the first part, very interesting. Thanks for making me look! :)
