ConjugationEdit

Etymology 2Edit

Traditionally taken to be from דָּן (dan, Dan (one of the sons of Jacob in the Bible)), whose name perhaps derived from the same root ד־ו־ן(d-w-n) as above, but modern scholars frequently view this figure as an after-the-fact eponym and connect the tribal name to other words and names, such as Denyen.

Proper nounEdit

דָּן (dan)

  1. Dan (one of the Israelite tribes).
  2. Dan (the region of Ancient Israel occupied by this tribe).
  3. A male given name.
