🔼Etymology of the name Zippor
The name Zippor comes from the fertile word-group צפר (sapar):
The regular form of the name Zippor is the same as the noun צפור meaning Bird. NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Sparrow. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names reads Little Bird. But these distinctions are really not represented by the name Zippor.
