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


ADRAHASIS.  Adrahasis, a man of Surippak, and son of Ubaratutu, the patriarch to whom, according to the Deluge Tablet, the gods revealed the secret of the impending deluge, and who erected an ark accordingly, whereby he and his family and sevens of all clean beasts were saved.  His name, when transposed, is believed to be the origin of the Greek name Xisuthrus.  Its meaning appears to be, "shut up in a box or ark," from the two characters signifying "enclosed," and "box," respectively.  In Accadian he is called Tam-zi (Tammuz), "the Sun of life." (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
   Another explanation makes it a Babylonian form of Assyrian Khasis-adra (which see), possibly meaning "great intelligence," i.e. "the Sage." (Transactions of the Society of Biblical Archaeology, v.4, 1876).
