What is on the site is correct, and what you say is correct as well, because Arhab could refer to two different names. In Arabic their spelling is different, but in English they are spelled the same.
The Arhab on the site is أرحب, derived from رحب Quranic root. Arhab itself is not used in the Quran, but its root is used in a number of places, such as 9:25, in the form "rahubat", which means breadth, vastness: "Indeed, God has helped you on many occasions. On the day of Hunayn, when you took pride in your great numbers, they proved of no avail to you—for the earth, despite all its vastness, became [too] narrow for you and you turned back, in retreat."
Arhab means very vast, or open, and when used to describe a person it means intelligent, open minded, charitable.
The other Arhab is أرهب in Arabic, which means "scary, terrorizing".
The first Arhab's "h" is the "h" used in alhamdulillah or Ahmad. While the second one's "h" is like the normal English "h", such as that used in "hill". English doesn't distinguish between the two "h"s, but in Arabic they are completely different letters.
Thus if you say Arhab, pronouncing the "h" like the "h" in Ahmad, then that means open-minded, intelligent, charitable.
