The first people may have left their names with us. They are biblical names, but may have been the original tribal names prior to the Isrealites.
Azreal is the name of the Angel of Death in Muslim theology. Notice how close it resembles the anglicized “Isreal” Could it be that way back that hte warriors of Isreal were so feared as to be called, “Angel of Death?”
Here are some names (sounds) associated with the names of ancient languages, dieties and angels
An, Mar, Je~Jo, Ab, Ra, Ba, ohm, om, el, am,… etc. These are like last names telling association.
These are just guesses but,
An might mean ‘of God’
Mar might mean of a particular higher being
Je means of “Who created the earth”
Ab might mean “came forth from” Abba for example is “father”
Ra is of the son
ohm and om may mean peace or harmony
el is a suffix that means angel
am mean of the energy of life, or birth or start.
So if you have someone named Daniel in the old testament, that would be a person whose is D an i el. Or D of God, an angel. See what I mean.
When looking for God’s name, it might be interesting to comb back through oldest tests and look at how people were named. Abraham for instance.
Or one who came forth from (Ra) energy of life or start. Very
well named since from him two major religions sprang forth, Muslim and Judaism
Not saying this is correct, because all this has passed through so many tellings and translations. But fun to think about.
I think it would be fun if my name were Mariel. But who knows what my name really is and what it means. Only God knows.
