Aner in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
a'-ner (`aner; Septuagint Aunan; Samaritan Pentateuch, `anram,
"sprout," "waterfall"): One of the three "confederates" of
Abraham in his pursuit after the four kings (Gen 14:13,14).
Judging from the meanings of the two other names, Mamre being
the name of the sacred grove or tree (Jahwist) and synonymous
with Hebron (Priestly Code); and Eschol--a name of a valley
(lit. "grape cluster") from which the personal names are
derived--it may be expected to explain the name Aner in a
similar way. Dillmann suggested the name of a range of
mountains in that vicinity (Comm. at the place and Rosen in
ZDMG, XII, 479; Skinner, Genesis, 365).
