  1. Meaning and origins of the village name:
    • 1st possibility: Distortion of the word “hāshūsha”, meaning the agonized and tortured.
    • 2nd possibility: Present form of the verb “hashsh”, meaning suffered and endured.
    • 3rd possibility: Village of pain and agony  in Syriac.
    • 4th possibility: Syriac word meaning the “Suffering god”

    All four possibilities refer to pain and suffering. To explain this, one must go back thousands of years ago, to the times of the Phoenicians, whose god Adonis dies in the Valley of Adonis River - Nahr Ibrahim , the river that bounds the village of Yahchouch on the North.
     

  2. Demographics, The total population of Yahchouch is around 4000, 60% are permanent residents; the rest live on the coast in winter and in Yahchouch in the summer.

Meaning and origins of the village name:
Chouwan: Even though he doubts its Semitic origin, Dr Anis Freiha assumes it might be a distortion of the Semitic word “Shewê”, plural of “Shewé”, meaning “flat” and “leveled” as opposed to “rugged” and “high”.

Al iibré: The name derives from the root “Ebra”, meaning the crossing, the coast, which is used in reference to “the other side”. The root word"عبر" means to cross and pass.
