Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

נֵר pl. נֵרוֹת (from the root נוּר to shine).

(1) a lamp, a candle, Zephaniah 1:12 often used of the lamps of the holy candlestick (הַמְּנוֹרָה), Exodus 25:37, 35:14 37:23 39:37 once of the candlestick itself, 1 Samuel 3:3. It is figuratively applied in various ways

(a) to happiness (compare אוֹר letter e), however the idea of a light is still retained, e.g. Proverbs 13:9, נֵר רְשָׁעִים יִדְעָךְ “the lamp of the wicked shall be put out,” i.e. they grope in darkness; Proverbs 20:20, 31:18 Psalms 18:29, “thou wilt light my lamp,” i.e. cause my affairs to prosper; Job 29:3.

(b) to glory. So 2 Samuel 21:17, where David is called the lamp of Israel. (The same figure is used in Syriac and Arabic, e.g. see Barhebræus, Assemanni, ii. p. 266.)-The proper signification is retained Proverbs 20:27, “the lamp of the Lord (lighted by him) is the soul of a man who explores the recesses of the breast.”

(2) [Ner], pr.n. of the grandfather of Saul, 1 Samuel 14:50, 51 1 Samuel 14:51, 26:5 1 Chronicles 8:33.
