Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חָתָן m. he who takes any one’s daughter in marriage, Gr. γαμβρός, hence with regard to the bride

(1) a bridegroom, Psalms 19:6; Isaiah 62:5. It is not easy to explain now in what sense the new-born child, Exodus 4:25, should, when circumcised, have been called by its mother חֲתַן דָּמִים bridegroom of blood [see note above]. It seems to me that in this metaphorical appellation is contained a comparison of circumcision, as the sign of the covenant between God and the new-born child (Genesis 17:10, 13 Genesis 17:13), with marriage; and for the same reason the Arabic verb ختن to contract affinity, has also the signification of circumcising, no doubt a secondary sense, derived from the former. [But see above]. Aben Ezra says, “It is customary for women to call a son when he is circumcised, bridegroom.” Those who apply these words to Moses and not to the child, seem to have made a great mistake; see the observations of Pococke in Not. Miscell. ad portam Mosis, p. 52. Rosenm. on Ex. loc. cit.

(2) with regard to parents, a son-in-law, Genesis 19:12; Judges 15:6.

(3) a connection by marriage, 2 Kings 8:27.
