🔼Etymology of the name Jehoaddan
The name Jehoaddin consists of two elements. The first part is יה (Yah) = יהו (Yahu) = יו (Yu), which in turn is an abbreviated form of the name usually translated with Lord: יהוה, YHWH, or Yahweh.
The second part of the name Jehoaddan comes from the verb עדן ('adan), meaning to make luxurious:
Root עדן ('eden) has to do with free exchange of broadly diverse information, services and goods — which is where wealth comes from, in the modern understanding of economy. Nouns עדן ('eden), עדנה ('edna) and מעדן (ma'adan) mean delight, finery or luxury. Adjective עדין ('adin) means delightful or luxurious. Verb עדן ('adan) means to luxuriate or to delight.
