Augustus it is a roman name. --Ciberprofe (talk) 03:47, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

That very well could be correct as the Smith's Bible Dictionary seems to indicate. Also it is referenced as a biblical name as Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary shows. Couldn't tell you IF this is correct or not, but these are the references.--Doug Coldwell talk 10:52, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

It seems to me that Abba is not a proper name in the bible, but something appended to other names, as well as the name of famous religious scholars who are not, themselves, named in the bible. I am therefore removing it from the list. 04:44, 8 March 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

Aarat and Ararat ?[edit]

The name Aarat is not found in the text of the KJV. The linked page in Smith's is headed Aarat, but actually describes Ararat. The page linked to Smith's for the word Ararat gives a page not found error. I think the entry for Aarat should be removed, and the link for Ararat changed to point to the incorrectly headed page in Smith's, yet with the correct word used as the displayed text for the link.

Arpad not Árpád[edit]

The Hungarian name Árpád does not occur in the Bible. The name Arpad occurs 4 times in the KJV. It has no connection with the Hungarian prince! The entry and its links should be corrected. DFH (talk) 14:18, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
