AHILUD (a-hī'lŭd, Heb. ’ăhîlûdh, a child’s brother). Father of Jehoshaphat the recorder (2Sam.8.16; 2Sam.20.24; 1Kgs.4.3; 1Chr.18.15).

AHILUD ə hī’ ləd (אֲחִיל֖וּד, exact meaning uncertain). The father of Jehoshaphat, a “recorder” during the reigns of David and Solomon (2 Sam 8:16; 20:24; 1 Kings 4:3; 1 Chron 18:15), and prob. also of Baana, one of Solomon’s commissariat officers (1 Kings 4:12).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The father of Jehoshaphat, who is mentioned as "recorder" in both the earlier and the later lists under David, and in the list under Solomon (2Sa 8:16, 1Ch 18:15; 2Sa 20:24; 1Ki 4:3). In the absence of proof we may assume that the father of Baana, one of Solomon’s district superintendents, was the same Ahilud (1Ki 4:12).
