Abraham named a well and Isaac named a city. 1 Furthermore, even if they were referring to the same place, the Bible says Isaac “called it Shebah,” not that he came up with the name in the first place. For instance, millions of people call New York City “New York City,” but this does not mean that they came up with the name in the first place. Isaac could have established the traditional name given by his father Abraham.
