Meaning of the baby name DAREIOS.

  

DAREIOS (Δαρεῖος).  Greek form of Hebrew Dareyavesh (q.v.), from Zend Dara, meaning "king" or "wealthy."

... The name of several kings of Persia, three of whom are mentioned in the Old Testament bible and the Apocrypha.  The original form of the name, to which the Hebrew (Dareyavesh) and Greek words are only approximations, has been read by Grotefend in the cuneiform inscriptions of Persepolis, as Darheush or Darjeush (Heeren's Ideen, ii. 350), and by Beer as Daryawush (Allg. Lit. Zeit. 1838, No. 5)... (Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature, McClintock, 1894)
