Pleasantness, graciousness, loveliness.
There are two women in the Bible called Naama: one is one of the decendents of Cain, and the other – the wife of Rehoboam, King of Judah.
"And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the Loes did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess." 1 Kings 14, 21

Correction to your page

Your page about the name 'Naama' (http://eteacherbiblical.com/Hebrew-Names/naamah-naama-naama) says that she was 'the wife of Rehoboam, King of Judah.' But to the best of my knowledge, and according to your own citation that follows, she was his mother (NOT wife). She was a wife of Solomon (and I have been told she is the only named wife of Solomon's - don't know if that's true).

"And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the Loes did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess." 1 Kings 14, 21

Thank you.
