Hebrew "red", "man" or "earth"; OT Genesis 1:19.

Note that Adamus was used in many old documents in Latin in place of Adam. Search on Adam* to take account of Latin case endings.

Edom, also from Hebrew "red", was a nickname for Esau; OT Genesis 25:30. There is some confusion with Adam in the use of this name.
