🔼The name Taralah in the Bible
🔼Etymology and meaning of the name Taralah
It's not clear how the name Taralah was formed. NOBSE Study Bible Name List appears to derive the final part of it from אלה ('eloah), meaning God:
How NOBSE interprets the first part isn't clear (the most obvious resemblance is with the noun תר, tor, meaning dove), but Taralah is given the inexplicable meaning Power Of God.
Alfred Jones (Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) figures that, since the letters ע and א do at times alternate, the name תראלה may very well be a variant spelling of the noun תרעלה (tar'ela), meaning reeling:
And so Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names translates our name with Reeling.
BDB Theological Dictionary does not offer an interpretation and lists our name alphabetically under ת instead of under a particular root.
