From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:

     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
       (3.) One of the sons of Shammai in the tribe of Judah (1 Chr.
     2:28, 30).

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:

  Nadab, free and voluntary gift; prince
