Anak, Anakim

Additional Links
(ay' nak, an' uh kihm) Personal and clan name meaning, “long-necked” or “strong-necked.” The ancestor named Anak had three children: Ahiman, Sheshai, Talmai (Numbers 13:22 ). They lived in Hebron and the hill country (Joshua 11:21 ) before being destroyed by Joshua. Their remnants then lived among the Philistines (Joshua 11:22 ). These tall giants were part of the Nephilim (Genesis 6:4; Numbers 13:33 ). Arba was a hero of the Anakim (Judges 14:15 ). The spelling Anakims puts the English plural “s” on to the Hebrew plural “im.”
