AMMISHADDAI ("Shaddai is My Kinsman"; compare Shaddai, and the names Zurishaddai, Shedeur, and perhaps Absadai [Lidzbarski, "Handbuch der Nordsem. Epigraphik," p. 206]; also Ammi-el, Ammi-baal, etc. See 'Amm, 'Ammi):

Name of the father of the Danite Ahiezer, in Num. i. 12, ii. 25, etc. Gray, "Hebrew Proper Names," pp. 194 et seq., 245, pronounces the name a late and artificial formation.
