Meaning of the baby name AKHENATON.

  

AKHENATON.  Egyptian name meaning "spirit of Aton."  Also spelled Akhenaten.

    As a mere boy Amenhotep IV ascended the throne and immediately set about converting an entire race by royal decree.  He consecrated his life to the One God—Aton—the Sun, kindly Creator of all things.  All other gods he anathematized.  With oconoclastic fervor he obliterated their memories so thoroughly that he even cast off his own name "Amon-rests" to proclaim his devotion in the name of "The Spirit-of-Aton"—Akhenaton. (Bulletin of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, v.17, 1922).
