Timeless - classic but not ubiquitous. It's a beautiful name.

There were 4 in my year at school (90's) so it was very common then. Presumably not very common now though.

I'm not sure I would describe it as dated but it's definitely a name I associate with a particular time period - Rebeccas are just turning 40

I love it.

All the Rebeccas I know are adults but they are all fantastic women.

Timeless, lovely name, not too common.
I may be biased as Dd1 is called Rebecca! She is in her 20's now. There were quite a few around when she was little but she was always the only one in her class. Don't know many others now.

Love Rebecca but not keen on the shortenings ie Becky, Beck, Becca

Virtual Hamster, as one myself I'm a few years off 40 wink
I'm biased but I love my name!
