Etymology of the name BAR-NABHA.
Meaning of the baby name BAR-NABHA.

  

BAR-NABHA.  Aramaic form of biblical Barnabas (q.v.), meaning "son of exhortation," or "son of Nebho."

    The name, though Aramaic, is strangely heathen for a Levite.  In Acts 4:36 it is explained as a surname given "by the apostles" to the Cypriote convert, whose real name was Joseph.  Apparently by combination of the Aramaic bar ("son") with the Hebrew naba ("to prophesy" or "exhort") the sense "Son of exhortation" is obtained.  The name is really formed from the Syrian divinity Nebo or Nabu (cf. Nebuchadnezzar, Nabonassar) with the prefix Bar (cf. Barabbas, Bartimaeus, Bartholomew, Bar-Jesus). (Commentary on the Epistle of Paul to the Galatians, Bacon, 1909)
