Bible Names N-Z: Timna
Timna in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
1. Eliphaz' concubine, mother of Amalek (Genesis 36:12;
Genesis 36:22); in 1 Chronicles 1:36 Timna is not, as
apparently, a son of Eliphaz. Probably sister of Lotan,
daughter of the Horite Seir. The feminine form of Timna shows
that it is introduced in Chronicles as an abbreviation for
what the chronicler knew his readers understood from Genesis,
namely, that Timna was mother of "Amalek," which follows.
2. A duke or phylarch of Edom (Genesis 36:40-43), so
that Timna was probably the name of a district.

Timna in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
tim'-na (timna`; Thamna): A conbubine of Eliphaz, Esau's son,
and the mother of Amalek (Gen 36:12). But in Gen 36:22 and 1
Ch 1:39 Timna is the sister of Lotan, and in Gen 36:40 and 1
Ch 1:51 a chief or elan of Edom (see TIMNAH (3)). These
variations are to be expected when the origin of genealogies
is recalled. (In Genesis, English Versions of the Bible read,
contrary to rule, "Timnah.") Gunkel's theory is that Gen
36:12a is a later insertion in P.
