JABR (جبر).  Arabic name, apparently from the vocabulary word jabr ("constraint, force"), hence "constrainer" or "despot, tyrant."  English algebra comes from Arabic al "the" and jabr (the constrainer). (People's Magazine, v.1, 1834)  Related to Jabir (q.v.)

... There was a king of Yemen called Abu 'l-Jabr, of whom Ibn Duraid has spoken in the following verse of his celebrated kasida which is entitled Maksura: And sadness mingled with the soul of Abu Jabr, till death joined him to the number of those whom it had already seized. (Ibn Khallikan's Biographical Dictionary, v.4, 1871)
