🔼The name Zemirah in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Zemirah
The name Zemirah obviously stems from the root form זמר, but it's not clear from which noun exactly. It could be the masculine noun זמיר (zamir), meaning song, made feminine by adding a ה (he). Or it's the feminine noun זמרה (zimra), also meaning song, with an added י (yod) for flavor. It can even come from the identical noun זמרה (zimra), meaning gift:
For a meaning of the name Zemirah, both NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names read Song.
BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't interpret our name and lists it not under זמר (zmr I) but under זמר (zmr III). Taken from this root, the name Zemirah would mean Gift.
