🔼The name Bealiah in the Bible

The only Bealiah mentioned in the Bible is one of the valiant men of war who join David at Ziklag (1 Chronicles 12:5). Whatever became of Bealiah is not known, as he isn't heard from in other Scriptures.

🔼Etymology of the name Bealiah

The name Bealiah consists of two common elements. The first part is identical to the name Baal, and that name comes from the common Hebrew verb בעל (ba'al), meaning to rule or possess:

The second part of the name Bealiah is יה (Yah) = יהו (Yahu) = יו (Yu), which in turn are abbreviated forms of the Tetragrammaton; the name of the Lord: YHWH.
