Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

הֶרֶס ἅπαξ λεγόμ. [Destruction], a word of doubtful authority, Isaiah 19:18, where in most copies, MSS. and printed, as also Aqu., Theod., Syr., is found עִיר הַהֶרֶס יֵאָמֵר לְאֶחָת֑ according to the common use of the languages “one (of these five cities) shall be called the city of destruction,” i.e. according to the idiom of Isaiah “one of these cities shall be destroyed;” compare אָמַר Niphal. The Jews of Palestine who approved of this reading, applied it to Leontopolis and the temple there, which they hated, and the destruction of which they supposed to be here foretold. The name of the city was supposed by Iken, to be figuratively expressed in these words (Dissertatt., Philol. Crit., No. XVI), comp. هَرِسُ dilacerator, i.e. a lion. The more probable reading, however, is חֶרֶס which see. I have made further observations on this in Comment. on the place.

[“הָרַר an unused root; prob. to swell, kindred to הָרָה to become pregnant, prop. to swell, to become tumid. Chald. הַרְהֵר id. Hence הַר, הֹר, הָרָר, הָרָרִי.” Ges. add.]
