1: Delilah is largely used in the English and German languages, and it is derived from Hebrew origins. The name is of the meaning weak, poor; delight. The name is of obscure origin; it could be from the Hebrew element dal (meaning weak, poor) or the Hebrew for delight, or else it could be of Arabic roots. It was borne in the Bible by the cunning lover of Samson who betrayed him to the Philistines by trimming his hair and leaving him vulnerable. The name was nevertheless adopted by English Puritans in the 17th century, perhaps because she was also described as a beautiful and intelligent woman. The name has been publicized by Saint-Saens opera Samson and Delilah (1877), two songs titled Delilah (1917 and 1968), and a recent song titled Hey there Delilah (2006).
