    Name Meaning

    Biblical name (of uncertain origin), borne by Samson's mistress, who wheedled him into revealing that the secret of his strength was in his hair, and then cut it off while he was asleep and betrayed him to the Philistines (Judges 16:4–20). Although the biblical Delilah was deceitful and treacherous, the name was in regular use in Britain and the U.S. from the mid 17th century to the late 18th century. Since then it has occasionally been revived as an exotic name.
