🔼The name Jedidah in the Bible

The only Jedidah in the Bible is the mother of king Josiah, and the daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath (2 Kings 22:1).

🔼Etymology of the name Jedidah

The name Jedidah comes from the verb ידד (yadad), meaning to love:

The name Jedidah differs from the name Jedidiah with only one letter. But this letter in the masculine name Jedidiah is the particle יה (Yah) = יהו (Yahu) = יו (Yu), which is the common abbreviation of the personal name of God: YHWH; Yahweh. The he upon which the name Jedidah ends is a common feminization of the root.
