🔼The name Neri in the Bible

The name Neri occurs only once in the Bible, although it's most probably a Greek transliteration and truncation of the Hebrew name Neriah. The one and only Neri is mentioned by the Lucan author as ancestor of Jesus Christ (Luke 3:27).

Neri is also the grandfather of Zerubbabel, which would make Neri roughly contemporary with Neriah the father of Baruch (Jeremiah 32:12).

🔼Etymology of the name Neri

The name Neri derives from the verb נהר (nahar), which means to flow or to shine:

The ι upon which our name ends is a transliteration of the Hebrew letter י (yod), which often indicates a possessive form (my light, or the adjective bright), or it's what's left of the name יהוה, which is YHWH, or Yahweh; the name of the Lord.

🔼Neri meaning

The name Neri either means My Lamp or Bright or Yah's Brightness.
