From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    length, a river in the "land of the Chaldeans" (Ezek. 1:3), on
    the banks of which were located some of the Jews of the
    Captivity (Ezek. 1:1; 3:15, 23; 10:15, 20, 22). It has been
    supposed to be identical with the river Habor, the Chaboras, or
    modern Khabour, which falls into the Euphrates at Circesium. To
    the banks of this river some of the Israelites were removed by
    the Assyrians (2 Kings 17:6). An opinion that has much to
    support it is that the "Chebar" was the royal canal of
    Nebuchadnezzar, the Nahr Malcha, the greatest in Mesopotamia,
    which connected the Tigris with the Euphrates, in the excavation
    of which the Jewish captives were probably employed.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Chebar, force or strength
