🔼The name Rhesa in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Rhesa
The name Rhesa is a Greek transliteration of a name that obviously derives from the root ראש (ro'sh), meaning head:
The final "a" of our name probably comes from the Aramaic propensity to endow words with a fancy post-fixed "a". It looks snazzy but it doesn't change the meaning.
The name Rhesa primarily means Head but may also be interpreted as Disenfranchised or more to the point: Relieved Of Social Burdens.
