From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     or No-A'mon, the home of Amon, the name of Thebes, the ancient
     capital of what is called the Middle Empire, in Upper or
     Southern Egypt. "The multitude of No" (Jer. 46:25) is more
     correctly rendered, as in the Revised Version, "Amon of No",
     i.e., No, where Jupiter Amon had his temple. In Ezek. 30:14, 16
     it is simply called "No;" but in ver. 15 the name has the Hebrew
     Hamon prefixed to it, "Hamon No." This prefix is probably the
     name simply of the god usually styled Amon or Ammon. In Nah. 3:8
     the "populous No" of the Authorized Version is in the Revised
     Version correctly rendered "No-Amon."
       It was the Diospolis or Thebes of the Greeks, celebrated for
     its hundred gates and its vast population. It stood on both
     sides of the Nile, and is by some supposed to have included
     Karnak and Luxor. In grandeur and extent it can only be compared
     to Nineveh. It is mentioned only in the prophecies referred to,
     which point to its total destruction. It was first taken by the
     Assyrians in the time of Sargon (Isa. 20). It was afterwards
     "delivered into the hand" of Nebuchadnezzar and Assurbani-pal
     (Jer. 46:25, 26). Cambyses, king of the Persians (B.C. 525),
     further laid it waste by fire. Its ruin was completed (B.C. 81)
     by Ptolemy Lathyrus. The ruins of this city are still among the
     most notable in the valley of the Nile. They have formed a great
     storehouse of interesting historic remains for more than two
     thousand years. "As I wandered day after day with ever-growing
     amazement amongst these relics of ancient magnificence, I felt
     that if all the ruins in Europe, classical, Celtic, and
     medieval, were brought together into one centre, they would fall
     far short both in extent and grandeur of those of this single
     Egyptian city." Manning, The Land of the Pharaohs.

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

  No, stirring up; forbidding
