It occurred to me last night that the name Hannibal is essentially the same as the Biblical Hananiah. Just like Macharbal is to Machariah. It's funny that while I've always thought of Hannibal as a Punic name, and while I've known since grade school that the Punics were Phoenician, I never made the connection. I never regarded Hannibal as a Semitic name, which it clearly is.
