I vaguely remember having a frum Jewish teacher with that name, she was Ashkenazi and Israeli. But I can't find the name anywhere. Have you ever heard of it? Is it short for something? What's the source and meaning?

Never heard of Shivti, but I know a Shvut and know of a few others.

I've known someone called Shivti (in Israel).

It wasn't actually her full name, but an abbreviation for something. I don't actually remember her full name, but I remember being surprised when I saw it written down.

No. If you live in an English speaking country, just no.

The poor child will be called Shifty.

It sounds like a nickname. Not a regular full name on it's own. Maybe her name was "Shiffy" short for Shifra but as a kid to OP it sounded like "Shivti."

Quoting myself because I remembered her full name as I saw it in writing.

If I had only seen in writing I would probably have tried to pronounce it Shabbat-yah, but I think it is actually Shivtiyah, meaning Hashem has returned me (or has caused me to return).

Its actually a lovely name, and especially appropriate for this time of year.

Shivti just means "I will dwell" or "I may dwell" - in the whole pasuk (or song) it's "I may dwell in the house of Hashem all the days of my life", but just out of context, it's a bit weird IMO.

I wonder if we know the same person. Very educated?

I saw her name too and thought it had to do with Shabbat and then was surprised to hear it pronounced.

Itโ€™s not a name. Itโ€™s a word. Its in tehillim. No one just picks a random word and uses it for their child. Choose a name.

Some people pick a word. I'd say better by far than making one up ! But Shiviti is an AWFUL book
