What does the word Adam mean?
Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible with the Greek and Hebrew: 119. âdam to show blood (in the face) i.e. flush or turn away—be dyed, made) red (ruddy). 120. âdâm ruddy, i.e. a human being 127. àdâmâh ground: soil (from its gen. Redness), country, earth, ground.
ADAM, the name of the man created in the image of God appears to be derived from the Hebrew ddam which means “he or it was red or rudy”, like Edom. It apparently refers to the ground from which he was formed, which in the Hebrew is Adamah which is derived from (119) which means red.
