🔼The name Jagur in the Bible
The name Jagur occurs only once in the Bible. It's the name of a town that was situated at the southern extremity of the territory allotted to the tribe of Judah (Joshua 15:21).
🔼Etymology of the name Jagur
Scholars seem to think that the name Jagur is an active form of the verb גור (gur), meaning to sojourn, but note that our name is spelled the same as the adverb יגור (yagor), meaning fearing:
The name Jaguar means Fearing or Quarreling or Lodging, and it's impossible to determine either what it was supposed to mean when this name was first designed, or what it may have reminded a Hebrew audience of when this text was written.
For a meaning of the name Jagur, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Lodging Place and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names proposes Lodging. BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't interpret our name but does list it under the verb גור (gur), meaning to sojourn.
