I recently discovered one of the meanings of my name, Rebecca. It means "knotted cord". Not bad for a crocheter, who spends her time knotting cords.
MORE INFO: Rebecca is an ancient name of Hebrew origin. The name Rebecca is mentioned in the Genesis as being the wife of Abraham's son Isaac and as a beautiful and clever maiden. The name signifies a knotted cord or to bind from the original Hebrew word rivka, which is often connoted as a person with a captivating personality.
