🔼The name Ahian in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Ahian
The name Ahian comes from the curious little word אח (ah), which in this context probably means brother:
The letter nun upon which our name ends is probably a remnant of the familiar waw-nun extension, which forges a personification or localization of the root.
The name Ahian would thus mean He Who Acts Like A Brother, or more concise: Fraternal (NOBSE Study Bible Name List and BDB Theological Dictionary) or Brotherly (Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names).
