Meaning of the baby name CHERES.


CHERES.  Egyptian name for Ares, god of war, meaning "a lion."

... There were several kings in Egypt of the name of Cheres: some are stiled Acheres or Acherres; which is "the mighty Cheres": others are stiled Conchares and Achencheres; that is Ouc Cahen Cheres, "the great lord and ruler Cheres."  Of this many instances may be found in the Alexandrine Chronicle, as well as in Eusebius.  Acheres and Achencheres is, according to the Greek acceptation, "the great lord Mars": but properly it is arez, a lion; from whence the αρης of the Greeks was derived.  Αλκης μεν και ῥωμης συμβολν αυτοις ὁ λεων.  It was a title first conferred on the third king of Assyria,... The Egyptians, who called Ham, Cham, pronounced Arez, charez and cherez: hence Acchencherez, or Ouc-cahen-charez...
