What does Genesis 36:41 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 36:41

Duke Aholibamah, Duke Elah, Duke Pinon.
] The former is the name of a woman, ( Genesis 36:2 Genesis 36:25 ) ; here the name of a man, and also of the place of which he was duke; for Jerom observes F17, that Oolibama is a city of the princes of Edom, and who also makes mention of Elath, a country of the princes of Edom, and a city of Esau, ten miles from Petra to the east F18, and the seat of Duke Pinon was very probably Phinon, which lay between Petra and Zoar F19.
