Names (Rebecca)

Some books give Rebekah and its variants (it's my middle name) as meaning
"faithful wife" or "knot", which I assume is a kind of transferred
meaning-from-character from the Genesis Rebekah?

The thing wch really annoys me is commercially produced items with "name
meanings" that are completely fictitious as far as etymology goes.
