Pardon my typo.  I meant “Danel” is a famous name in 14th century BCE Ugarit 
(not “Daner”).  Here is the opening paragraph of Wikipedia’s discussion of 
Danel at Ugarit: 
“Danel was a _culture hero_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_hero)  who 
appears in an _Ugaritic_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ugarit)  text of the 
fourteenth century BCE at _Ras Shamra_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ras_Shamra) 
, where the name is rendered DNL.  He is commonly identified with the 
Biblical _Daniel_ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel)  of _Ezekiel_ 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Ezekiel) .”
