Meaning of the baby name Artachschaschtha.

  

ARTACHSCHASCHTHA (אַרְתַּחְשַׁשְׁתְּא).  Hebrew form of Persian Ardeshír (q.v.), meaning "mighty king." 

Artachschaschtha (Gk. Artaxerxes), issued a decree extremely favourable to the Jews, which was carried by Ezra to Jerusalem. (Ezra vii. 1. xiii. 1.)  This sovereign is the Artaxerxes surnamed Longimanus, or the Long-handed, from a trifling deformity.  Nehemiah was his cup-bearer, and was permitted by him to return to Jerusalem, with a commission to rebuild its walls, and to be the governor of Judaea. (An Introduction to the Critical Study of the Holy Scriptures, Horne, v.2, 1836)
