🔼The name Zimran in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Zimran
The name Zimran comes from the fertile word-group זמר (zamar I, II & III):
The name Zimran is the word זמר post-fixed with the nun, which tends to localize or personify the action of the root: One Who Makes Music, or One Who Prunes. Or Mountain Sheep Man.
For a meaning of the name Zimran, both NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names go with the word that denotes the mountain dwelling creature. NOBSE reads Antelope; Jones reads Fine Chamois (meaning, a goat-like antelope according to the Oxford Dictionary).
