Meaning of the baby name ANAHITA.

  

ANAHITA (آناهیتا).  Persian name meaning "pure, spotless." In mythology, this is the name of a goddess of fertility and water.  Other forms include Armenian Anahid, Greek Anaïtis, Egyptian Anit.

... She was the personification of the pure waters in nature, that were supposed to flow from Mount Hakairya, and that fertilized the earth, as being derived from Ahura-Mazda.  She is often identified with Diana, and also with the so-called Syrian Venus, whose worship was celebrated with most licentious rites all over the East and West, as far as the Canaanitish worship reached, in Malta, at Carthage, and in Spain... (The Life and Times of S. Gregory the Illuminator, Malan, 1868)
