Etymology of the name MAKEDA.
Meaning of the baby name MAKEDA.

  

MAKEDA (מַקֵּדָה).  From the biblical Canaanite town Makkedah, meaning "a place of shepherds."  The queen of Sheba was known to the Ethiopian people by the name Makeda. (The New International Encyclopaedia, Gilman, v.15, 1904).
    Makeda Silvera is a Caribbean Canadian novelist and short story writer. (Wiki)

    A Canaanite town to which Joshua pursued the five kings who had confederated to attack Gibeon (Josh. x. 10).  After this defeat, they took refuge in a cave at Makkedah, but were brought out and hanged on five trees (16-27).  Before that day was ended, Joshua had taken Makkedah itself, and killed the king (28-30; cf. xii. 16).  The town, which was in the lowland of Southern Palestine, was assigned to Judah (xv. 41).  Various conjectures have been made as to its site.  At the suggestion of Sir Charles Warren, it has been placed on the survey map doubtfully at el Mughar, in the Philistine country, 3 miles south-west of Ekron, 18-1/2 north-east of Ashkelon, and 7 in a direct line from the Mediterranean.  Various other sites had previously been proposed. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894).
