Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 הִנֹּם proper name, masculine (derivation & meaning dubious; according to Sim Bö Gf and others = wailing, Arabic from cries of children (see below), but this improbable) — only in ׳גֵּי(גֵּיא)בֶןהֿ, & abbreviated ׳ה׳ג,

proper name, of a location of valley south of Jerusalem, (ᵐ5 φάραγγα Ὀνομ Joshua 15:8 (twice in verse) Σονναμ Joshua 18:16; Ταιεννα Joshua 18:16; Ταιβενθομ 2 Chronicles 28:3, ᵐ5 L φάρ. Βενεννομ; γὲ βανὲ Ἑννομ) 2 Chronicles 33:6, ᵐ5 L γῇ Βενεννομ; elsewhere usually φάρ.

Theol. 326 ff. Di Buch Henoch. 131f.) & NT γέεννα. On locality compare Rob BR ii. 273f. Tobl Topogr. ii 39 ff. Bd Pal 103; modern name (of lower half of valley, toward southeast) Wady er-Rabâbi.
