Origin of the name AHTI.
Etymology of the name AHTI.
Meaning of the baby name AHTI.

  

AHTI.  Unisex.  An Egyptian goddess, having the head of an uræus and the body of an hippopotamus.  She was one of the Typhonic or malevolent deities. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  It is also another name for the god Bes (q.v.).

AHTI.  m.  Variant spelling of Finnish Ahto (q.v.), the name of a god of the waters, meaning "the sea." 

    There are a good many divine beings who are called by names different from those of the things they represent, but such names are certainly less ancient, and side by side with them the use of the ancient, direct denomination still continues.  Thus Ahti is the proper noun, of doubtful origin (probably Germanic), indicating the god of the waters; Vellamo (also probably Germanic) is the goddess of the waters; but these are often called simply lord or lady of the waters (veen isäntä, emäntä), nay, the water itself, vesi, is sometimes found invoked by its own name as a divine being... (The Traditional Poetry of the Finns, Comparetti, 1898).
