Meaning & Origins

Biblical name (meaning ‘bee’ in Hebrew), borne by the nurse of Rebecca (Genesis 35:8) and by a woman judge and prophet (Judges 4–5) who led the Israelites to victory over the Canaanites. It has always been popular as a Jewish name. It was in use among Christians by the mid 16th century and was taken up by the Puritans in the 17th century, in part because the bee was a symbol of industriousness. Since then it has enjoyed enormous popularity, peaking in the 1960s. Among other famous bearers is the actress Deborah Kerr (1921–2007).
55th in the U.S.
Possibly a variant of English Shadlock, from Middle English schaken ‘to shake’ + loc ‘lock’ (found in the plural in one early example, Schakelokes). If this is right, it was either a nickname for someone with the habit of shaking back his or her long hair, or a metonymic occupational name for a jailer. Alternatively, it could be from Middle English schaklock ‘fetter’, ‘shackle’, again an occupational name for a jailer.
