    Descended from Cain, or Seth? Or both?

    Father of Naamah; Noah's wife?
    Or Father of Noah? Or both?

    In the Hebrew, the names Enoch (חנוך) and Enosh (אנוש) are not so similar. Enoch should really be pronounced Ḥano̞χ (Khanokh in modern Hebrew).

    Sorry, I don't know anything about it.
