Hersheba was conceived on Alt.Fan.Pratchett newsgroup in 1992 when Terry described having to explain the reference for 'Djelibeybi'... 
"[...] say Djelibeybi OUT LOUD -- I must have had twenty letters (and one or two emails) from people who didn't twig until the third time round... oh god... do they have them in the US? Should it have been called Emmenemms, or Hersheba... hmm, Hersheba... could USE that, yes, little country near Ephebe..."

Hersheba went on to be mentioned in The Discworld Mapp, Soul Music, Thief of Time, The Discworld Companion and The Compleat Discworld Atlas!
