This name derives from the Hebrew “chăbaqqûq > Chavaqquq”, meaning “embrace, ardent embrace, one who embraces”. Habakkuk was a prophet in the Hebrew Bible. He is the author of the Book of Habakkuk, the eighth of the collected twelve minor prophets. Two separate locations in Israel claim to be the burial place of Habakkuk. Both locations are in Upper Galilee in northern Israel. The first is a hillside at Kadarim, where stands a small stone building containing a tomb.
