How Was Noah Named From Adam's Curse?

"And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed"

When the first humans were created, sinless, they were given to tend the Garden in Eden (see also Adam's First Names). It was a very easy task - the weather was always perfect, there were no destructive pests, and there were no weeds. That's what made it "paradise."

"2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 2:11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 2:12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. 2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. 2:14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it." (Genesis 2:8-15 KJV)

Garden
But the first humans chose to do whatever pleased them (see also Why Did Adam and Eve Get Different Sentences For Their Sin?). For that, the LORD permitted nature to grow wild - just as the first humans had become lawless and uncivilized. Weeds began to grow, from which the humans thereafter had to do hard labour to make their living.

"3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." (Genesis 3:17-19 KJV)

Weeds
The generations that followed inherited Adam's curse of the land - they made their living by chopping the endless weeds that infested the Earth. Lamech, became the father of Noah with the hope that their son would "comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed." The name "Noah" was taken directly from an ancient Hebrew word that means comfort.

"5:25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech: 5:26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters: 5:27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

5:28 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son: 5:29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed. 5:30 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters: 5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth." (Genesis 5:25-32 KJV)
