1. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Kirjath-arba
   city of Arba, the original name of Hebron (q.v.), so called from
   the name of its founder, one of the Anakim (Gen. 23:2; 35:27;
   Josh. 15:13). It was given to Caleb by Joshua as his portion.
   The Jews interpret the name as meaning "the city of the four",
   i.e., of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Adam, who were all, as they
   allege, buried there.
   

2. Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
