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


RIMMON (רִמּוֹן).  Biblical.  A form of Babylonian Ramman ("the thunderer"), meaning "pomegranate" in Hebrew.

    (1) A Syrian god.  Naaman the Syrian leper after being cured is troubled over the fact that he will still have to bow down in the house of the Syrian god, Rimmon, when his master goes into the house to worship leaning on his hand (2 K 5:18).  Elisha answers him ambiguously:  "Go in peace."  Judging from Naaman's position and this incident, R. must have been one of the leading gods of the Syrians worshipped in Damascus.  He has been identified with Rammanu, the Assyr god of wind, rain and storm.  The name appears in the Syrian personal names Hadadrimmon and Tabrimmon and its meaning is dubious (ramamu, "to thunder" [?])
    (2) A Benjamite of Beeroth, whose sons Baanah and Rechab assassinated Ish-bosheth (2 S. 4:2,5,9). (The International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia, Orr, v.4, 1915)
