🔼Etymology of the name Bunah
The name Bunah appears to be related to the verb בין (bin), and specifically a variant spelling of the noun בינה (bina), meaning understanding:
The verb בין (bin) means to distinguish and thus to discern, contemplate and understand. Its derivation בין (ben) means between, and obviously resembles the word בן (ben), son. A spectrum of sons is what an אב ('ab), or father, is expressed in.
