🔼The name Shelomi in the Bible

The beautiful name Shelomi occurs only once in the Bible. He is the father of Ahihud of Asher, who was among the tribal leaders assigned by YHWH to divide up the promised land for the tribes of Israel (Numbers 34:27).

🔼Etymology of the name Shelomi

The name Shelomi comes from the verb שלם (shalem), meaning to be unbroken or whole:

The letter י (yod) upon which our name ends, may either create an adjective (such-and-such-like), a possessive form (my such and such), or may be a remnant of יה (Yah) = יהו (Yahu) = יו (Yu), which in turn are abbreviated forms of the Tetragrammaton יהוה, YHWH or Yahweh.

🔼Shelomi meaning

For a meaning of the name Shelomi, NOBSE Study Bible Name List takes the final yod to be the mark of an adjective, and reads At Peace. Alfred Jones (Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) sees the final yod as an indication of a possessive form, and reads My Peace. BDB Theological Dictionary does not offer an interpretation of the name Shelomi, but does list it under the verb שלם (shalem).
