Comments for the name Éibhear

Comments for ÉIBHEAR:

I know what that tribe's name means! It HAS to mean "the Hebrew [tribe of] Dan." Dan was the ancestor of the Celtic tribes. That said, Eibhear comes from the name Eber, which means, "region beyond," from the Chaldean/Hebrew word abar, which means, "to pass over." Eber is the ancestor of Abraham, who is the ancestor of the Arabs and the tribes of Israel. The name Eber is where we get the name Hebrew.

Another name for the ancestors of the Celts is Tuaath Danaan, which means, "tribe of Dan." Dan means, "Judge," and has its own entry on this site.
