Mainly because I love Becca though and the only Rebekah I knew was an arsewipe 🤣

Rebecca. So she won’t have to always spell out her name

Rebecca otherwise she will have to tell everyone how to spell it.

I know Rebekah is the biblical version.

Definitely Rebecca

Rebekah is a bit footballers wives

Or alternatively, the traditional Hebrew/Biblical version

That said I also prefer Rebecca

Beautiful name!

I prefer Rebecca and I think it's what most people who guess at the spelling would try.

Rebekah is more unusual.

I know more Rebeccas so my first instinct would be that spelling, but pick the one you prefer.

If a Rebekah or Rebecca becomes very famous your DD could equally be needing to say “double ca not kah” or “kah not cca”

Just not Becky, please, horrible name

I preferred Rebekah until R ‘Wagatha Christie Affair’ Vardy’s fluorescent teeth wrecked it for me.

Never seen Rebekah but something makes me want to pronounce it Re-beak-ah.
