Perhaps you might want to consider these etymologies:

Regarding Ts'laph'chadh: one existing in the shadow of agitation and fear
His daughter's names were  

Machlah = feeling dismayed 
              (MChL ~ Syriac = weaken, grow weak, fall ill, dismayed; related to Hebrew ChLh) 

No/ah = holding oneself back 
              (~ NW/ = sift > restrain > N/L lock, N/M = withheld thing, MN/ = restrain)

Chagh'lah = making oneself go around in circles
               (ChGL = to go around)

Milkah = vacillation
                (MLK = to deliberate > be deliberate > rule > king)
                (see Akkadian consider, discuss, advise, look after, mind, confer) 

Teertsah = running away, making oneself disposed to something else or indisposed 
                 (RWTs = to run)
                 (RTsH = show favor, be disposed to)
