Judas is Greek for Judah. Judah means "He shall be praised".
Phares is Green for Pharez. Pharez means "a breach".
Zara means "A Rising (as the sun)
Thamar is Greek for Tamar and means "a palm tree".
Esrom is perhaps Greek for Hezrom
Aram means "exhaulted".

I am of the opinion that these named women, being all of Gentile heritage, shows that the linage of maternal side as being important unto the Jews to show prove Jewishness and linage is tracked on the paternal side to show the male descendants right of earthly inheritance monetary or goods . Therefore the linage of Christ is of its Jewishness has gaps of Gentile linage via Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth to demonstrate unto readers of God 's word that Gentiles are indeed, included in the Covenant of Grace via maternal Jewish linage as well as the evidences left in the words of the Apostle Paul covered in Romans 2.
