Meaning of the baby name ANAMMELECH.


ANAMMELECH.  Biblical.  [Hebrew Anammelek (עֲנַמֶּלֶךְ), from Hebrew Anam = "an image" and melek = "king" (Gesenius).  But Anam is now believed to be from Anu-malik ("Anu is prince"), a Babylonian god, who presided over the sky, and had for his consort a goddess Anunit].

    One of the two leading "gods" worshipped by the people of Sepharvaim (the two Sipparas) on opposite banks of the Euphrates.  One of these portions of the city was distinguished as Sippara of Samas or the Sun-god, and the other as Sippara Anunit (see the etymology).  The inhabitants of the city when brought to colonise Samaria woshipped Anammelech with Adrammelech, another Babylonish deity by burning their children in the fire (2 Kings xvii. 31). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
