RAAD (رعد).  Arabic name, derived from the vocabulary word ra'd, meaning "thunder." (An Arabic-English Vocabulary for the Use of English Students &c., Cameron, 1892)

    Wilkinson, referring to the same subject, says, "the name raad 'thunder' is very remarkable, since the modern Egyptians are quite ignorant of its peculiar powers; and if it was borrowed by them from their predecessors, the question naturally arises, were they acquainted with electricity?"... "It is said that the electric fish of the Nile bears a name in Egypt that signifies thunder." (The Canadian Journal of Industry, v.3, 1858)
