Etymology of the name AMMI-ZADUGA.
Meaning of the baby name AMMI-ZADUGA.


AMMI-ZADUGA.  Early Babylonian personal name meaning "my uncle is righteous." (Early Babylonian Personal Names, Ranke, 1905)

... Zaduga is the Hebrew zadoq, a root unknown to Assyrian; but the name of Ammi-zaduga recurs in that of the South Arabian Ammi-zadiqa who, according to an early Minaean inscription, was appointed by the Minaean king, Abi-yada', governor of the fortress of Za'r on the Egyptian frontier as well as of the neighbouring district of Ashur (see Gen. xxv. 3); and in another Minaean inscription we find the name of Ammi-zaduq.  The various ways in which the name of Ammi-zaduga is written in the contract-tablets of his reign are of themselves sufficient to show that it was foreign.  The grandfather of Ammi-zaduga was Abesukh, i.e. the Abishua' of the Old Testament, which the Babylonians transformed into their own word, Ebisum, "the doer."... (Expository Times, vol. 8, 1897)
