Old Testament Hebrew Lexical Dictionary
Strong's #7759 - שׁוּלַמִּית
Shulamite = “the perfect” or “the peaceful”
1) the heroine lover of the Song of Songs (of Solomon)
שׁוּלַמִּית Shulamith, pr.n. of the maiden who is celebrated in the Song of Solomon, Song of Solomon 7:1. (Vulg. pacifica.) But הַשּׁוּלַמִּית may be taken for the gentile noun, i.q. שׁוּנַמִּית Shunamite (for the town of Shunem is by Eusebius called Sulam) [Engl. Trans. “the Shulamite”]; and this, on account of the article, seems preferable. [This may be taken as the fem. form of Solomon.]
