This name was common in Israel to both sons and daughters. We meet with a Shuah, the brother of Chelub, or Caleb, 1 Chronicles 4:11—and Shuah, sister to Japhlet, 1 Chronicles 7:32. The name is from a similar word, to cry. It is probably that the Shuhites were from this stock. Abraham's son Shuah, or Shuach, might be the founder of the Shuhites, or Shuchites.
