While I was spending easter at my uncles’ place (Oh did I say that I spend easter with the whole family gathered? No? well who cares anyway). Anyway I had the national geographic French version magazine (yes I knew national geographic had a magazine but not a french version!) anyway I asked for a Dictionnary (bad French language when taken from the scientific sector), my uncle gave me this huge old (ancient!!!) Dictionnary. AN awesome work, it’s better than any dictionary I have at home.
Anyway the point is, I found the word Rebec. Naturally I was interested since my name’s Rebecca. Apparently it’s a medieval musical instrument deriving from the Arabic Rabab (ربابة ( Very funny to know, it is considered as one of the ancestors of the violon (my favorite instrument).
That’s so cute!
