From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     palm isle, the fourth and youngest son of Aaron (1 Chr. 6:3). He
     was consecrated to the priesthood along with his brothers (Ex.
     6:23); and after the death of Nadab and Abihu, he and Eleazar
     alone discharged the functions of that office (Lev. 10:6, 12;
     Num. 3:4). He and his family occupied the position of common
     priest till the high priesthood passed into his family in the
     person of Eli (1 Kings 2:27), the reasons for which are not
     recorded. (See ZADOK.)

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

  Ithamar, island of the palm-tree
