Pildash (Person)
PILDASH (PERSON) [Heb pildāš (פִּלְדָּשׁ)]. The sixth son borne by Milcah to her husband Nahor, Abraham’s brother (Gen 22:22). The name Pildash seems to be used here as a personal one. If it is also a tribal name, the location is unknown but is perhaps to be sought in N Arabia with other Nahorites.
