Origin of the name NAHUR.
Etymology of the name NAHUR.
Meaning of the baby name NAHUR.

  

NAHUR (נָהוּר).  Aramaic name meaning "light," and "lightning."  Also spelled Nahir, Nahor, and Nehor.  It is related to Hebrew Nachor.

... We then find that Rab or Reb means "chief," "great," (as in Rabsaris, Rabmag,) and that bahak בָּהַק is a very old word for "whiteness," or "brightness," and, putting these together, we conclude that the name signifies "The great white one," or "The chief white shiner," i.e. "The Moon," a God in Chaldaea.  And in this deduction we are strengthened, when we find that she was the daughter of Nahor, which means light.  It is spelled נָחוּר Nachur, which means "snorting!" the real signification is נָהוּר Nahur, "light."... (Ancient Faiths Embodied in Ancient Names, Inman, 1868)
