From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:

  Nadab
     liberal, generous. (1.) The eldest of Aaron's four sons (Ex.
     6:23; Num. 3:2). He with his brothers and their father were
     consecrated as priests of Jehovah (Ex. 28:1). He afterwards
     perished with Abihu for the sin of offering strange fire on the
     altar of burnt-offering (Lev. 10:1,2; Num. 3:4; 26:60).


     
       (2.) The son and successor of Jeroboam, the king of Israel (1
     Kings 14:20). While engaged with all Israel in laying siege to
     Gibbethon, a town of southern Dan (Josh. 19:44), a conspiracy
     broke out in his army, and he was slain by Baasha (1 Kings
     15:25-28), after a reign of two years (B.C. 955-953). The
     assassination of Nadab was followed by that of his whole house,
     and thus this great Ephraimite family became extinct (1 Kings
     15:29).
     
       (3.) One of the sons of Shammai in the tribe of Judah (1 Chr.
     2:28, 30).
