(ay' nak, an' uh kihm) Personal and clan name meaning, “long-necked” or “strong-necked.” The ancestor named Anak had three children: Ahiman, Sheshai, Talmai (Numbers 13:22). They lived in Hebron and the hill country (Joshua 11:21) before being destroyed by Joshua. Their remnants then lived among the Philistines (Joshua 11:22). These tall giants were part of the Nephilim (Genesis 6:4; Numbers 13:33). Arba was a hero of the Anakim (Judges 14:15). The spelling Anakims puts the English plural “s” on to the Hebrew plural “im.”
