Such a name (or Deborah) doesn't appear on the POMOG list of saints, but that's hardly authoritative. Fwiw, I've never heard of one. I'd have thought that the Old Testament Judge named Deborah might be one though...

There is Righteous Deborah the Judge, one of the righteous women of the Old Testament period. Her feastday is the Sunday of the Forefathers, just before the Nativity of Christ.
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

Here, for example, you have a mosaic icon of St Deborah from the cathedral in Cluj.

Thanks for posting the  mosaic icon of St Deborah from the Cathedral in Cluj.  Do you know the dates the cathedral was built?  Was it during Uniate times?
I have seen other pictures of that cathedral & I like the stars in the background of the frescoes.

The cathedral was built in the 1920s.

Yes, there was. There are many Greek-Catholic parishes in Transylvania.

Anyone who has studied Romanian history knows about the  union in Transylvania and the role the Greek Catholics had in using the Romanian vernacular language.  Comparisons have been made to the Greek Catholics in Galicia.
