Haggedolim

Additional Links
(hag' geh doh' lihm) Personal name meaning, “the great ones.” Zabdiel a leading priest was the son of Haggedolim (Nehemiah 11:14 KJV, “the great men”; TEV, “a leading family”). Bible students have suggested that haggedolim is probably not a Hebrew proper name and have interpreted it as a copyists' change of an unfamiliar name for a more familiar word or title, an honorary title for a leading family, or a title for the high priest.
