And unto E'-ber were born two sons: the name of one was Pe'-leg;
for in his days was the earth divided; ... Genesis 10:25. KJV

The retouched NASA photograph (top-left) represents the Red Sea shortly after the rift valley "split" (peleg) and separated Africa from the Arabian peninsula. If a hot strip, as shown, was visible to Peleg's contemporaries, then perhaps it suggested the name for the newly forming sea.
