🔼The name Abiud in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Abiud
After the ab- part comes the letter י (yod), which results in the possessive form and אבי, which means my father, or father of.
The second part of our name derives from either of the words ידה (yada), meaning to praise, or הוד (hod), meaning majesty:
For a meaning of the name Abi(h)ud, NOBSE Study Bible Name List and BDB Theological Dictionary both take it from the noun הוד (hod). Hence BDB reads My Father Is Majesty and NOBSE has The Father Is Majesty.
Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names derives our name from the verb ידה (yada), and translates it with Father Of Praise.
