*** Noah's real name (as given by his father Lamech) was Menachem meaning "the Consoler" or "Comforter":

4 :14. And Methuselah called his name Noah, saying, The earth was in his days at rest and
free from corruption, and Lamech his father called his name Menachem, saying, This
one shall comfort us in our works and miserable toil in the earth, which God had cursed.
*** Noah married the daughter of Enoch - Naamah at the age 498 years. Naamah was 580 years old, being 82 years older than Noah! Being 580 years old, she conceived Japheth, believed to be the proto-ancestor of all the Indo-Europeans.

5 :14. And the Lord said unto Noah, Take unto thee a wife, and beget children, for I have seen
thee righteous before me in this generation.

5 :15. And thou shalt raise up seed, and thy children with thee, in the midst of the earth; and
Noah went and took a wife, and he chose Naamah the daughter of Enoch, and she was
five hundred and eighty years old.
*** Noah completes the Arc when he turns 600 years old. It took him 5 years to build it:

5 :34 In his five hundred and ninety-fifth year Noah commenced to make the ark, and he
made the ark in five years, as the Lord had commanded.
*** Noah tells the atheism (as is the case with modern civilization) was the reason for deluge:

6 :19 And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them from the ark, saying, Have you not all
rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist? and therefore the Lord
brought upon you this evil, to destroy and cut you off from the face of the earth.
*** Noah's sons married 3 great grand-daughters of Enoch:

5 :35 Then Noah took the three daughters of Eliakim, son of Methuselah (son of Enoch), for wives for his sons, as the Lord had commanded Noah.
**** Noah's and Naamah's (daughter of Enoch) firstborn Japheth had 7 sons:

2. These are the sons of Japheth; Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and
Tiras, seven sons.

GOMER - The Hebrew name Gomer refers to the Cimmerians, who dwelt in what is now Crimea in Ukraine, "beyond the Caucusus", and attacked Assyria in the late 7th century BC. The Assyrians called them Gimmerai; the Cimmerian king Teushpa was defeated by Assarhadon of Assyria sometime between 681 and 668 BC. Josephus placed Gomer and the "Gomerites" in Anatolian Galatia: "For Gomer founded those whom the Greeks now call Galatians, but were then called Gomerites." Galatia in fact takes its name from the ancient Gauls (Celts) who settled there. However, the later Christian writer Hippolytus of Rome in c. 234 assigned Gomer as the ancestor of the Cappadocians, neighbours of the Galatians. Jerome (c. 390) and Isidore of Seville (c. 600) followed Josephus' identification of Gomer with the Galatians, Gauls and Celts. According to tractate Yoma, in the Talmud, Gomer is identified as "Germamya".

MAGOG - While the origin of the term is unclear, it may have referred to Lydia, in what is now Turkey. Its use in the Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 38 has led to it being associated with apocalyptic traditions. Various ancient and medieval traditions have built on the biblical references and added details to it.
The origin of the name Magog is unclear. It may come from the Akkadian mat Gugi, "land of Gog", that is, the land of Gyges: Lydia (today's West Turkey, former Byzantine / Roman empire)

MADAI - Biblical scholars have generally identified Madai with the Iranian Medes of much later records. The Medes, reckoned to be his offspring by Josephus and most subsequent writers, were also known as Madai, including in both Assyrian and Hebrew sources. In addition, the Kurds still maintain traditions of descent from Madai.

JAVAN - Josephus states the traditional belief that this individual was the ancestor of the Greeks.
