Origin of the name ‘Goliath’

by 5ocietyx

‘Goliath hailed from the Philistine city of Gath. Usually, the name “Goliath” is thought to be connected with the Assyro-Babylonian “Guzali,” which means “running” or “destroyer.” More recently etymologists have related it to the Indo-European name, “Alyattes.”
