Strong’s Greek Lexicon
of Aramaic origin [H1123 and H7266]; sons of commotion; Boanerges, an epithet of two of the apostles:—Boanerges.
Owing to changes in the enumeration while in progress, there were no words left for numbers 2717 and 3203–3302, which were therefore silently dropped out of the vocabulary and references as redundant.
Thayer’s Greek Definitions
Boanerges = “sons of thunder”
1) a nickname given to James and John, the sons of Zebedee, by the Lord. The name seems to denote fiery and destructive zeal that may be likened to a thunder storm.
