Re: Angel

In Jonah 2:4(3) בִּלְבַב יַמִּים is 'in the middle of the sea'.
There is no immediate relation between לבב, 'heart', and לביבה, 'cake', except for the body.

Re: Angel

In Jonah 2:4 we read
וַתַּשְׁלִיכֵנִי מְצוּלָה בִּלְבַב יַמִּים וְנָהָר יְסֹבְבֵנִי כָּל מִשְׁבָּרֶיךָ וְגַלֶּיךָ עָלַי עָבָרוּ
Are these גלים of the high seas also "circular".

Re: Angel

גלגל = גל-גל, namely two גלים, two mounds, one up and one down to complete a circle.
קל is a variant of גל, 'rising'.
מלכקרת = מלכ-קרת, 'the ruler מלכ of the city קרת'
קֵרֵחַ, 'shaven', has nothing to do with קֶרַח, 'ice, hail'.

Re: Book of Esther

These are not "suffixes and prefixes", but rather
אביאל = אב-היא-אל
אליאב = אל-היא-אב
