Meaning of the baby name ACHORIS.


ACHORIS.  The Greek form of Egyptian Hakor (q.v.). (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  The name may mean "burnt." See note below.

... There was a temple called Carour and Caroura; and the country all around termed Κε&kappaαυμενη or burnt... There was likewise a temple of the same name in the vicinity of the above mentioned city;... It was called the temple of Menes; and was probably built by some of Egyptian race, that settled here: who came either from Colchis or Cappadocia, where were the two most ancient colonies from that country.  The temple was called Carour: and it was probably erected in honour of the first king of Egypt, who was called by that name, and in memory of the city that we have been treating of.  There was another city of lower Egypt towards the sea, that was likewise called Carour; and is mentioned in the Notitia Ecclesiastica: by some it was termed Achoris. (Observations and Inquiries Relating to Various Parts of Ancient History, Bryant, 1767).
