Raqeem, Raqmu, Petra

Today, on Wikipedia page of Petra, I found this:

Petra (Arabic: ٱلْبَتْرَاء‎, translit. Al-Batrāʾ; Ancient Greek: έτρα), originally known to its inhabitants as Raqmu...

Suddenly I reminded of the word Raqeem in the Quran. Might there be a relation between Arabic Raqeem of the Quran and Nabataeans Raqmu? And possibility of a new interpretation for its history?
