Post in Besides Beauty

The name?

I was wondering if anyone knew about the name Sephora? I have always wondered if it was named after someone or if it was some Greek or Latin word that meant beauty Smiley Happy.

Re: The name?

Hi 1930sbella,


The name has a special meaning! Sephora is a combination of "sephos", which is Greek for "beauty" and the name Zipporah, the pretty wife of Moses.

Re: The name?

Interesting! Why did they choose Zipporah? Zipporah was of a beautiful race, but it was Sarai wife of Abraham who was renowned for her beauty.

Re: The name?

Ahh I love!! I never thought of where the name came from!!
