🔼The name Naharai in the Bible
There's only one man named Naharai in the Bible. Naharai the Beerothite was one of the mighty-men of David, and this particular one appears to have been the armor bearer of the famous Joab son of Zeruiah (2 Samuel 23:37, 1 Chronicles 11:39)
🔼Etymology of the name Naharai
The name Naharai is drawn from the verb נחר (nhr), which most likely means to snort (vigorously):
The letter י (yod) upon which our name ends, may either create an adjective (snorty), a possessive form (my snorting), or may be a remnant of יה (Yah), which is short for יהוה, which is the name YHWH, or Yahweh.
For a meaning of the name Naharai, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Snorting and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names has Snorter. BDB Theological Dictionary does not offer an interpretation of the name Naharai.
