Admoni

Admoni Jacob (i.e. Israel) the Fore-Father was twin-brother to Esau who was Admoni (i.e. red-haired. Admoni is sometimes translated as ruddy but more correctly meaning red-haired or golden-haired) and hairy (Genesis 25; 25) whereas Jacob was smooth-skinned (Genesis 27;11). David, King of Israel, was also an Admoni (1-Samuel 16;22) meaning red or golden haired. Laban, the father-in-law of Jacob has a name meaning Whitish and which is cognate with the English word blond.
