EWWWW!!! That name is gross!!! Hehe just kidding, it's served me well but I admit I do hate it when people call me Becky-it's so white girl/cheerleader. I pronounce it Ruh-beck-uh. I get called Becca as a nn.

I really don't like this name only because I've known 2 and they were both horrible people, so bad association for me. I pronounce it Ruh-beck-uh and I prefer it spelled Rebekah.

I wasn't too fond of it growing up, although I couldn't see myself named anything else. Now though, I really like it.

I say it "Ruh-Beck-Uh" but my grand-mother calls me "Ree-Becca". I go by Beck, Becki and Becca.. lol

Maybe the family was French. I went to a French Immersion school and that's how the name was pronounced by our teacher.
It's a good name. Not on my list but I like it fine on all the Rebecca's I know

I like this name and I love the nn Becca, but since it's my sisters name I probably wont use it for a first name, although it's defiantely in the running for one of my baby girl's mn's if I happan to have more than 1 girl

I have a really bad association with this name,,,, but I can't hate it because my sister who will be starting ttc in november wants to name her daughter Rebekah. . . . I like it spelled that way too

I pronounce it Ruh-beck-uh
I think Ray-Becca sounds kinda,, white trashish? (sorry if that offended anyone!)
