|Parents||Lamech and Zillah|
Naamah is an individual mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, in Genesis 4:22. A descendant of Cain, she was the only mentioned daughter of Lamech and Zillah and their youngest child; her brother was Tubal-cain, while Jabal and Jubal were her half-brothers, sons of Lamech's other wife Adah.
Gordon Wenham notes that the reason "she should be picked out for special mention remains obscure," while R. R. Wilson suggests that the narrator simply wished to offer a balanced genealogy by noting that both of Lamech's wives had two children.
The early Jewish midrash Genesis Rabba (23.3)  identifies this Naamah (the daughter of Lamech and sister of Tubal-cain) as the wife of Noah (see Rashi's commentary on Genesis 4:22), while some Jewish traditions associate her with singing.
However, a Sethite Naamah is named as the wife of Noah, and a daughter of Enoch, Noah's grandfather, in the mediaeval midrash Book of Jasher (trans. Moses Samuel c. 1840, ed. J. H. Parry 1887) Chapter 5:15.
