Proper noun[edit]

Judith

  1. A female given name from Hebrew
    • 1833 The New Monthly Magazine, E. Littell, Vol. 1, January-June 1833, page 211("On Grand Christian Names"):
      The beauty and simplicity of names are altogether arbitrary: Mary and Elizabeth, and Judith, may suit a taste formed on the Puritan model, that is to say, an English and Scottish taste: the French consider Victoire, Adele, Adriane, or any other such "fanciful and romantic" names, quite as simple, and perhaps as beautiful, as Mr. Stuart does Mary and Jane.
  2. A book of the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox canon of the Old Testament, considered apocryphal by Protestants.
  3. The protagonist of the Biblical book of Judith.
  4. A wife of Esau.
