This is an Aramaic word, found quoted in the (original) Greek New Testament.
Explanation: This is an Aramaic word, found quoted in the (original) Greek New Testament. It apparently means "little girl". There are several Aramaic words or phrases in the New Testament...not surprising, since Aramaic was the dominant language in the Middle East at the time (Palestine, Syria, and environs).
Since that time, people who've had contact with Christianity have occasionally named their daughters "Tabitha".
