Meaning of the baby name HEABANI.

  

HEABANI.  "Creation of Hea."  A famous sage, who according to the Izdubar Legends dwelt in a cave by himself by the shores of a great river, and avoided all human society.  He was renowned for his great wisdom, and was the chief friend and assistant of Izdubar in his various undertakings.  He was represented as a monstrous being, half man and half bull, somewhat resembling the Minotaur or Pan of Greek mythology.  After having rendered many services to Izdubar, he was killed by the bite of some poisonous insect, probably a fly, but his spirit was afterwards raised to earth again in answer to the earnest petitions and spells of his afflicted companion.  The relation of Heabani to the deity Hea other than his name is uncertain, and the real character of the sage is itself not clearly defined, as the legends relating to his conflicts with the bulls, lions, and evil spirits, which so continually occur on the Babylonian cylinders, have not yet been fully translated. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
