What Was Serach Bas Oshers Father's Name

   What was her father’s name
1.      אשר
2.       ישוי
3.        בן של ישוי
4.       מלכיאל 

The Ramban (26:46) claims the Targum Unkeles
translates   ושם בת אשר שרח  , ושום ברת אתת אשר סרח
 The name of the daughter of Osher’s wife was Serach.
(She wasn’t Osher’s daughter but his wife’s daughter)
The Ramban explains , Serach’s mother was married and
had only one child (Serach)  Osher married her after her
husband died.
The Techeilas Mordechai (Kur Zahav) say that she was
the daughter of Yishvi the son of Osher. When Yishvi died ,
Osher married his daughter in law. (Issur D’Orysa)* A second
possibility is that she was the grand daughter
of Yishvi and Osher married his son Yishvi’s daughter in law
(Issur D’rabanan)
The Sefer Hayoshor** says she was the daughter of   
Malchiel ben Eilam, (Eilam son of Sheim)

*Kodem Matan  Torah
