The word "Jordan" in Arabic is written as الأردن (pronounced ‘al-urdun’) which means intensity and predominance. It is also said that Jordan is one of the descendants of Noah. The Bible Dictionary states that Jordan is a Hebrew name meaning the slope, which is the most important river in Palestine. The Greek name for Jordan is ‘Jordanem’ and ‘Jordan’, meaning the slope or the deep.

As other posts correctly said, the name of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan comes from the river Jordan that connects the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. I would like to point out however that the Arabic word “al-’Urdun (الأردن)” is not etymologically Arabic. The name “Jordan” comes from the Biblical Hebrew word for the Jordan River “יַרְדֵן (Yarden)”. Most placenames in the Eastern Mediterranean are not Arabic but rather Syriac, Aramaic, or Hebrew that became Arabized after the sixth century. Arabic, Syriac, Aramaic, and Hebrew are all languages that form words on triliteral (three letter) consonant roots. In the case of the name Jordan, the root is Y-R-D, meaning “to descend” in Hebrew. There are a few associations of “descent” with the river Jordan: Jesus’ descent to the river, that river lies in the lowest point in the world, that the river flows from the mountains to the Dead Sea, a low-lying lake with no outlet.
