MAHAVITE (mā'ha-vīt, Heb. mahăwĭm). The family name of Eliel, one of David’s warriors (1Chr.11.46).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The description given to Eliel, one of David’s warrior guard (1Ch 11:46), perhaps to distinguish him from the Eliel in the next verse. Massoretic Text is very obscure here.
