Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Root
ד־י־ן

From the root ד־ו־ן ‎(d-w-n)/ד־ן ‎(d-n).

Conjugation[edit]

Etymology 2[edit]

Traditionally taken to be from דָּן ‎(dan, Dan (one of the sons of Jacob in the Bible)), whose name perhaps derived from the same root ד־ו־ן ‎(d-w-n) as above, but modern scholars frequently view this figure as an after-the-fact eponym and connect the tribal name to other words and names, such as Denyen.

Proper noun[edit]

דָּן ‎(dan)

  1. Dan (one of the Israelite tribes).
  2. Dan (the region of Ancient Israel occupied by this tribe).
