A scriptural name, in Hebrew Ribhkáh, signifies a rope with a noose, which perhaps is not unfit as the name of a girl who ensnares men by her beauty. Nicknames or pet-names are Beck, Becky, and Reka. Ranege is derived from Rebecca. Kabedigia is a female name that some think to have been derived from Rabege, another form of Rebecca.
