Zelah


Zelah
Zelah f
Biblical: name (meaning ‘side’ in Hebrew) of one of the fourteen cities of the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 18: 28). It is far from clear why it should have come to be used, albeit rarely, as a female given name in the English-speaking world. It may simply be a variant of ZILLAH (SEE Zillah) under the influence of the placename. However, for evidence that biblical placenames did yield English given names, cf. EBENEZER (SEE Ebenezer).
