Meaning of the baby name HATHOR.

  

HATHOR (Αθορ).  Greek form of Egyptian Het-Heru (q.v.), meaning "house of Horus."

    Hathor, in Egyptian Het-Heru, "house of Horus," or Het-Hert, "house above," is identified with Nut, the sky, or place in which she brought forth and suckled Horus; she was the wife of Atmu, a form of Ra.  She is represented as a woman cow-headed, with horns and a disk between them, and shares with Isis and Mut many of their attributes.  She is often represented as a cow coming forth from the mountain of the west.  The worship of Hathor is exceedingly ancient, and she was supposed to be the goddess of beauty, love, and joy, and the benefactress of the world. (The Mummy, Budge, 1894).
