🔼The name Jahdo in the Bible

The name Jahdo occurs only one time in the Bible. He is mentioned in a genealogy of Gad, the seventh son of Jacob and the first one of Zilpah, who became the ancestor of the tribe of Gad of Israel. Jahdo is a son of Buz and the father of Jeshishai (1 Chronicles 5:14).

🔼Etymology of the name Jahdo

The name Jahdo may come from the verb יחד (yahad), meaning to unite or join:

The letter ו upon which our name ends may be the masculine pronominal suffix: his. But note the similarity of this name and the names יחדיאל (Jahdiel) and יחדיהו (Jehdeiah), which are thought to derive from the verb חדה (hada), meaning to rejoice.
