🔼The name Rimmono in the Bible

The name Rimmono occurs only once in the Bible. It's listed as one of the cities that were donated to the sons of Merari by the tribe of Zebulun (1 Chronicles 6:77). Rimmono isn't listed anywhere else, but in the paragraph that describes the territory of Zebulun a town called Rimmon is mentioned (Joshua 19:13), and scholars generally assume that this is the same town.

🔼Etymology of the name Rimmono

The name Rimmono consists of two elements. The bulk of our name comes from the noun רמון (rimmon), meaning pomegranate:

The second element of our name is the final letter ו (waw), which could be construed to be the masculine pronominal suffix: "his".

🔼Rimmono meaning

None of the sources we commonly consult treats the name Rimmono as anything else but a curious variant of Rimmon, but with the otherwise unexplained final waw our name means His Pomegranate.
