is a Yiddish word referring to a busybody or gossip. It was also
the name of the matchmaker in the Broadway musical Fiddler on the
Orthodox Jews, the use of the word "Yenta" in the
derogatory sense is considered by some as lashon hara, since it
is considered to defame all women who have that name, though many
may be quite respectable.
