🔼The name Minnith in the Bible
The name Minnith occurs twice in the Bible. It belongs to a city in Ammonite territory, which was known for its wheat production (Ezekiel 27:17, also see 2 Chronicles 27:5).
🔼Etymology of the name Minnith
The etymology of the name Minnith is disputed. Alfred Jones (Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) takes it from an Arabic word meaning to be little, but transliterated into Hebrew it looks like it has to do with the verb מנה (mana), meaning to count, or perhaps to be bounteous:
For a meaning of the name Minnith, Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names reads Small. NOBSE Study Bible Name List, apparently, takes it from the Hebrew verb discussed above and reads Distribution, although that's a very free interpretation. BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't translate or interpret this name.
