Uzzen sheerah, Uzzen-sheerah, שֶׁאֱרָה
She'era (Wikipedia)

Sheerah is a woman in the Hebrew Bible appearing only in 1 Chronicles 7:24, where it says that she built three cities: Lower and Upper Beth-horon, and Uzzen-sheerah.

Herbert Lockyer suggests that she "must have been a woman of physical power," while Antje Labahn and Ehud Ben Zvi note that "her prestige remained in the community" since one of the cities (Uzzen-sheerah) carried her name.
