Meaning & History
Apparently means "diviner" in Hebrew. However, I found a source that claims it is derived from Hebrew nachash "serpent, snake". Nachshon appears in the Bible as the brother-in-law of Aaron, and the prince of the tribe of Judah, who was the first Jew to enter the Red Sea before it split (Exodus 6:23).
