Abi

ABI ā’ bī (composition of names). Used in many Heb. names as “father of” or “the father is” or “my father is.” The term does not necessarily refer to one’s physical father. Grammatically it may be subjective, as Abiathar, “father of abundance,” or objective, as Abijah, “Jah (Yahweh, Jehovah) is father,” or “is my father.” Abiathar may indicate a person characterized by abundance.
