Meaning of the baby name BARKU.


BARKU.  An epithet belonging to the Babylonian storm-god Ramman, meaning "the lightning."

... Ramman absorbed one after the other all these genii of tempest and contention, and out of their combined characters his own personality of a hundred diverse aspects was built up.  He was endowed with the capricious and changing disposition of the element incarnate in him, and passed from tears to laughter, from anger to calm, with a promptitude which made him one of the most disconcerting deities.  The tempest was his favourite rôle.  Sometimes he would burst suddenly on the heavens at the head of a troop of savage subordinates, whose chiefs were known as Matu, the squall, and Barku, the lightning; sometimes these were only the various manifestations of his own nature, and it was he himself who was called Matu and Barku... (The Dawn of Civilization:  Egypt and Chaldaea, Maspero, 1894).
