Etymology of the name ENMEDURANKI.
Meaning of the baby name ENMEDURANKI.


ENMEDURANKI.  "The hero who binds together heaven and earth."

ENMEDURANKI.  A name borne by a mythical king of Sippar, who has long been recognized as the original of Berossus' seventh antediluvian king, Euedorakhos, which see. (Legends of Babylon and Egypt, King, 1918).

... Another possible derivation may be found in a suggestion made by more than one scholar that the Euedorochos of Berossos (a name which in his list is found in place of Enoch) is a corruption of Enmeduranki, who is said in a ritual text to have been king of Sippar.  In the king-lists the dynasties of Kish and Agade (the older name of Sippar) are counted the same.  Enmeduranki, like Etana, was, accordingly, a king of Kish.  Enmeduranki means "the hero who binds together heaven and earth", and was a most appropriate epithet of Etana.  One may hazard the guess that the two were the same.  If so, the name Enoch may have been derived in accord with the phonetic laws already pointed out, from AN-KI, the Sumerian for "heaven and earth", the last two elements of Enmeduranki. (Journal of Biblical Literature, v.34, 1914)
