The one which suggests itself as being the most probable, is Gula, "the Sun," and UK, ath, "a portent." If the giant was as large when a baby as he was great when a man, the name, "a wonder from Gula," would be appropriate. This assumes that Goliath was his real cognomen.

In consequence of the above mentioned peculiarity of H this letter, it is occasionally necessary to give the meanings to be found under both forms of spelling. Habel, or Hebel, or San Gen. iv. 2), "To breathe, to exhale," "breath, vapour, mist." This etymology is to me ...
