'''NIMROD''' is a [[JAREDITE(S)|J<small>AREDITE</small>]] GN and PN that may be Semitic in origin: cf. Hebr. ''marad'' "to rebel"; Arab. ''marada'' "to be bold and audacious in acts of rebellion and disobedience"; Geez ''marada'' "to run strenuously; to attack."
 
 
Some would like to see possibly a variant of [[NIMRAH|N<small>IMRAH</small>]] and thus connect this name with leonid names (BU, NPSEHA 150.0 [Aug. 1982]), citing Dahood (in Pettinato Archives, p. 277), that on the pattern of Ugaritic ''ibrd'', “the bull of Hadd,” Nimrod should be ''nmrd'', “the panther of Hadd” (JAT, BU).
