thunder of the Lord, one of the princes who returned from the Exile (Neh 7:7); called also Reelaiah (Ezr 2:2).

thunder, or evil, from the Lord

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Raamiah:

ra-a-mi'-a (ra‘amyah; Codex Vaticanus Naamia; Codex Alexandrinus, Rheelma): One of the leading men who returned with Zerubbabel from captivity (Ne 7:7). In the corresponding passage in Ezr 2:2, where the same list is named, a slight variation in form is given. "Reelaiah" is the name found in this passage. Doubtless, one is a corruption of the other. Both have the same root meaning.s generally been identified with Regina, mentioned by Ptolemy and Steph. Byzantr. as a city in Southeastern Arabia on the shores of the Persian Gulf. The Septuagint (Rhegma) itself supposes this site. But the Arabic name of the city here indicated is spelled with a "g" and so gives rise to a phonological difficulty. A more probable identification has been found in the Sabean ra‘mah in Southwestern Arabia near Me‘in in the north of Marib. Me‘in was the capital of the old Minaean kingdom.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Raamiah:

(thunder of Jehovah) one of the chiefs who returned with Zerubbabel (Nehemiah 7:7). In Ezra 2:2, he is called REELAIAH. SEE [REELAIAH]. (B.C. 445)
