The meaning of Abi-albon in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

ab-i-al'-bon, abi-al'-bon ('abhi 'alebhon, meaning not known. Gesenius infers from the Arabic a stem which would give the meaning "father of strength," and this is at worst not quite so groundless as the conjectures which explain 'alebhon as a textual misreading for 'el or ba'al): Abi-albon the Arbathite was one of David's listed heroes (II Samuel 23:31), called Abiel the Arbathite in I Chronicles 11:32. Presumably he was from Beth-arabah (Joshua 15:6, Joshua 15:61; Joshua 18:22).
