Meaning of the baby name GOMER.

  

GOMER (גּׄמֶר).  f.  [Hebrew = "glowing coals" (?)].
    The daughter of Diblaim, and wife of Hosea the prophet (Hosea i. 3).

GOMER (גּׄמֶר).  m.  [Hebrew, from Assyrian Gimirrai = "Cimmerians" (Sayce).  See the article.  Cf. also Armenian Gamir = "Cappadocia" (Gesenius)].

    The eldest son of Japheth and the father of Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah (Gen. x. 2, 3; 1 Chron. i. 5, 6).  In Ezek. xxxviii. 6 he is associated with Togarmah.  He was probably the ancestor of the Cimmerians of classical history.  They came from the Crimea and the regions beyond the Caucasus, and threatened the Assyrian Empire, but were defeated by Esarhaddon.  Turning westward they overran part of Asia Minor, fighting more than one battle with Gyges, king of Lydia, the Scripture Gog, whom they killed.  They were afterwards driven out of Lydia by Alyattes.  They are generally considered to have been identical with the Cimbri of Roman times, and the Cymry of Welsh Cambria and even Cumberland still preserve the memory of their name. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894).
