MILCAH

mil'-ka (milkah; Melcha):

(1) Daughter of Haran, wife of Nahor, and grandmother of Rebekah (Genesis 11:29; 22:20-23; 24:15,24,47).

(2) Daughter of Zelophehad (Numbers 26:33; 27:1; 36:11; Joshua 17:3). Many recent authorities are of opinion that Milcah is an abbreviation of Bethmilcah, and is a geographical rather than a personal name.
