Commentary:

Dishon
  Dishan in the text, but from the context and order in Genesis 36:21, this is Dishon. This is also the way it is in 1 Chronicles 1:41 (see Radak ad loc.). Some say that Dishan died and Dishon took his name (Lekach Tov).

Chemdan
  In 1 Chronicles 1:41 it is Chamran.

Yithran
  Possibly Yetheth in Genesis 36:40.

Akan
  In 1 Chronicles 1:42 it is Yaakan.

Utz
  See Genesis 10:23, 22:21. The Targum on 1 Chronicles 1:42 renders it Armanyus; see Targum on 1 Chronicles 1:17; note on Genesis 10:23.
