[b-hebrew] The Name Abraham

Dear List-Members:

This may have been a subject of past discussion but as I am new to the
forum I do seek some help.

Hebrew names usually have meanings that can be determined from semantic and
phonetic analysis. However, the name Abraham seems to be quite a challenge
as the traditional interpretation "Father of a multitude" or "Father of
many nations" just does not account for the presence of the consonant *rosh.
Can anyone help to a better understanding or suggest an approach that could
assist with determining a more appropriate meaning.
