Paran: “Place of Caverns”?


What does “Paran” literally mean? Does that mean “Place of Caverns”?



  1. I could not find any classic Jewish source that suggests that Paran means “Place of Caverns.” In fact, there seems to be no mention of the meaning of the name Paran in the classic sources, which seems to indicate that there is no special or specific meaning to that name.
