Meaning of the baby name ANHUR.

  

ANHUR.  "That which brings to Heaven."

An Egyptian deity who is always represented as in a marching attitude, and robed with a long dress.  He wears a headdress of four plumes, with the usual uræus serpent of celestial deity.  He holds a cord in his hands, which is supposed to symbolise one of the forces of the universe.  He was a form also of the solar god Shu, and in that character he had for his consort the goddess Tefnut, the Heavenly Cow.  He was the Anouris, or Egyptian Mars, of the Greek writers.  Anhur was chiefly worshipped in the city and nome of Abot, which was situated in the Eastern bank of the Nile, in the Thebaid, and was afterwards called by the Greeks Thinites. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
