Chileab in Smiths Bible Dictionary (like his father), a son of David by Abigail. [ABIGAIL]

Chileab in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE kil'-e-ab (kil'abh; Dalouia, "restraint of father"): A son of David, born to him at Hebron. His mother was Abigail, whom David married after the death of her husband Nabal, the Carmelite (2 Sam 3:3). In the corresponding account (1 Ch 3:1) he is called "Daniel," the meaning of which name ("God is my judge") points to its having been given in order to commemorate God's judgment upon Nabal (1 Sam 25:39; compare Gen 30:6). Some suppose that he bore both names, but the Septuagint reading here Dalouia (1 Ch Damniel), and the identity of the last three letters of the Hebrew word "Chileab" with the first three of the following word, seems to indicate that the text of Samuel is corrupt.

Daniel in Wikipedia According to the Bible, Daniel, also known as Chiliab, was the second son of David, King of Israel, with Abigail, widow of Nabal the Carmelite, David's third wife. (1 Chronicles 3:1 , cf 2 Samuel 3:3 ) Unlike the other of David's three elder sons, Amnon, Absalom, and Adonijah who were important characters in 2 Samuel, Daniel is only named in the list of David's sons and no further mention is made to him. Though being the second son, Daniel was not a contender for the throne of Israel, even after the death of the first-born Amnon, the third-born Absalom and fourth-born Adonijah. The throne eventually passed to his younger half brother, Solomon. Daniel is known as Daluyah in the Septuagint. According to Rashi, some questioned whether Abigail was pregnant through David or her first husband, Nabal; therefore, God arranged that Daniel would resemble David. It is possible his name "Chiliab," which can be translated "perfection of the father," is a reference to (or cause of) that legend.
