Ashkenaz

Ashkenaz [N] [H] [S]

one of the three sons of Gomer ( Genesis 10:3 ), and founder of one of the tribes of the Japhetic race. They are mentioned in connection with Minni and Ararat, and hence their original seat must have been in Armenia ( Jeremiah 51:27 ), probably near the Black Sea, which, from their founder, was first called Axenus, and afterwards the Euxine.
