About the Kalb surname

Kalb families ,and Kalb tribe in Arabia,may both be descended from persons called KLB in the Byblical language ,mentioned in the Old Testament .

The first of them,son of Ak-Ha-Cher-Ayan-Na son of A-Pa-Ras-Ta son of A-Wa-Hayat-Daha , may be identical with Kalbim ,king of Kush between about 2061 and 2042 . He might have been born about 2100 ,his father around 2125 ,his grandfather around 2150 and great-grandfather around 2175,as the third son of Awashara'al ,born about 2201 . He immigrated to the Sarmata country involving then seemingly all the coastal territories along the Indian Ocean around in about 2136 BC and lived there until about 2127 BC . Sarmatia then included the sons of Apa-Terra-Sa ,the land where Satrapas used to rule,that is Iran and India , and Napat-Teke ,that is modern Aigypt and Nubia .

The second KLB may be historically recorded as Kalubim ,also in Kush , reigning between about 1703 and 1655 that is in the period of wandering in the "desert" ,whereever it was ,after the Exodus . He succeeded Pi-An-Nim in Kush,who may be the ancestor of Nimipi tribe in the Holy Land occupied yet in his time ,and may also be identical with his father whose name in the Byble is A-Wam-Pa-Na-Ha ,the ancestor of Numipu people. The latter language though is rather similar to Chulupi languages and maybe just to a less extent to Japanese and Chibcha ,what it should do so to according to the other known facts that suggest that the latter were the dialects this lineage has during the centuries evolved .

Kel-Laya-Bawa and Kera-Mawa ,alternative names for him,correspond to Bökli and Mukri kingdom in or in front of Japan .

A later Axumite king had also the name Kaleb .
