Origin of the name ALITTA.
Etymology of the name ALITTA.
Meaning of the baby name ALITTA.

  

ALITTA.   "The Child-bearing."  In ch. 131, Book i. Herodotus says, "the Arabians call Venus Alitta, and the Assyrians call Venus Mylitta;" and this he confirms in ch. 199.  Like the Alitta of the Arabs, Mylitta corresponded to Lucina, who presided over child-birth.  Both these names are Semitic, and are derived from weled, walada, "to bear children."  (Mulatto is from the past participle of the same verb.). (The History of Herodotus, Rawlinson, v.2, 1889).
