  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  brother  (i.e.,  "friend")  of  Jehovah.  (1.)  One  of  the  sons  of 
  Bela  (1  Chr.  8:7,  R.V.).  In  A.V.  called  "Ahiah." 
  (2.)  One  of  the  five  sons  of  Jerahmeel,  who  was  great-grandson 
  of  Judah  (1  Chr.  2:25). 
  (3.)  Son  of  Ahitub  (1  Sam.  14:3,  18),  Ichabod's  brother;  the 
  same  probably  as  Ahimelech,  who  was  high  priest  at  Nob  in  the 
  reign  of  Saul  (1  Sam.  22:11).  Some  however,  suppose  that 
  Ahimelech  was  the  brother  of  Ahijah,  and  that  they  both 
  officiated  as  high  priests,  Ahijah  at  Gibeah  or  Kirjath-jearim, 
  and  Ahimelech  at  Nob. 
  (4.)  A  Pelonite,  one  of  David's  heroes  (1  Chr.  11:36);  called 
  also  Eliam  (2  Sam.  23:34). 
  (5.)  A  Levite  having  charge  of  the  sacred  treasury  in  the 
  temple  (1  Chr.  26:20). 
  (6.)  One  of  Solomon's  secretaries  (1  Kings  4:3). 
  (7.)  A  prophet  of  Shiloh  (1  Kings  11:29;  14:2),  called  the 
  "Shilonite,"  in  the  days  of  Rehoboam.  We  have  on  record  two  of 
  his  remarkable  prophecies,  1  Kings  11:31-39,  announcing  the 
  rending  of  the  ten  tribes  from  Solomon;  and  1  Kings  14:6-16, 
  delivered  to  Jeroboam's  wife,  foretelling  the  death  of  Abijah 
  the  king's  son,  the  destruction  of  Jeroboam's  house,  and  the 
  captivity  of  Israel  "beyond  the  river."  Jeroboam  bears  testimony 
  to  the  high  esteem  in  which  he  was  held  as  a  prophet  of  God  (1 
  Kings  14:2,3). 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]: 
  Ahijah,  same  with  Ahiah
