🔼Etymology of the name Ahuzzam
The name Ahuzzam comes from the verb אחז (ahaz), meaning to take hold of or grasp:
The verb אחז (ahaz) means to seize, grasp, take hold of or be (mechanically) attached to. Noun אחזה (ahuzza) means possession.
This name's final letter mem can be explained in a number of ways. Alfred Jones (Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) assumes it has to do with a pronominal suffix and reads Their Possession. BDB Theological Dictionary and NOBSE Study Bible Name List construct a non-existing noun and read Possessor.
