Does anyone know another name for Rivka? Not looking for English variations such as Rebecca.... it’s my mil’s name but it was also my grandmother who I really would love to name for.
Any Yiddish options or names that have the same meaning?
Tia!

Just wondering if you know why it’s a take off of Rivka? I saw that Riva was a modernization of Rivka but the meanings aren’t the same so I’m trying to figure out was it just a “hip” way of saying Rivka?

The Hebrew name would be Rivka so I still need a different name. Not looking for a nickname...
thanks!

A friend of mine is names Riva for a grandmother who was named it as a Yiddish version of Rivka so I don't think it's modern

Ricky could be a nickname for Rivky also as a separate name Rickel
