Carmel in the Bible refers to two distinct places:

The word Carmel (Hebrew language: כַּרְמֶל) means "fresh" (planted), or "vineyard" (planted) and Karmiel (Hebrew: כַּרְמִיאֵל) is a portmanteau meaning "God's Vineyard".

The word is also commonly used in reference to the Carmelites and their houses or foundations.
