Meaning of the baby name KORAH.

  

KORAH (קׄרַח).  Hebrew name meaning "bald-head."

... Korah, the name of the principal insurgent against the authority of Moses and Aaron, means "bald-head."  It first appears as given to a son of Esau, who received his name for an opposite reason, his extreme hairiness at his birth.  Korah has its Latin equivalent in the word calvus, whence Calvinus, or, as we abbreviate it, Calvin, the name of the Genevan reformer; whereupon a Roman Catholic writer takes occasion to represent Calvin, the arch-schismatic, as typified by Korah, the first rebel against ecclesiastical authority.  On the other hand, a Protestant divine, in a treatise on the types of Antichrist, finds prefigured in the "baldness" of Korah the tonsure of the clergy of the Church of Rome. (Personal Names in the Bible, Wilkinson, 1865).
