🔼Etymology of the name Diblaim
The name Diblaim appears to be a plural form of the noun דבלה (debela), meaning fig cake:
The noun דבלה (debela) refers to a lump or cake of pressed figs and probably stems from an unused verb דבל (dabal) that meant to collect or stump together.
For a meaning of the name Diblaim, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads a curious Twin Fig Cakes, and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names offers a more realistic Two Cakes Of Figs. BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't interpret the name Diblaim but does list it under the root דבל.
