Bathsheba

Bathsheba is the name of the wife of King David and the mother of Solomon. In the Old Testament, Bathsheba’s husband Uriah is intentionally sent to the frontline of battle to be killed so that King David could marry her. They have a son, Solomon. The name comes from Hebrew meaning “daughter of the oath” or “daughter of seven” from Hebrew bat (daughter) and shéva which is similar to both the word for oath and seven.
