Etymology of the name BEBBA.
Meaning of the baby name BEBBA.


BEBBA.  A pet form of Swiss Elsbeth (q.v.), meaning "God's oath." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884). 

BEBBA.  An Old English pet form of Elizabeth (q.v.), meaning "God's oath."  [Bebba, æ; f. Lat: Bebbe, an; f. Bebba, the name of a queen...] (An Anglo-Saxon Dictionary, Bosworth-Toller, 1882).

Bamburgh, or Bamborough, on the coast of Northumberland, stands on a mass of basaltic rock frowning over the sea, and approachable only by steps cut in the precipice.  The name appears as Beban-burh and Bebba-burh in the Saxon Chronicle.  It was the fortress and capital of Ida, the Flame-bearer, and is said by Bæda to bear the name of a Queen Bebba or Bebbe, probably not the Queen of Ida, but, as we are told by Nennius, the Queen of Ædilfrid, the grandson of Ida. (Names and Their Histories, Taylor, 1898)
