Origin of the name HOROS.
Etymology of the name HOROS.
Meaning of the baby name HOROS.

  

HOROS (Ὡρος).  Greek name of a Gnostic god, meaning "the Limiter," from horos (boundary).  He has also been called "the distant one."  It is a form of Egyptian Horus (the sun). 

... A figure entirely peculiar to Valentinian Gnosticism is that of Horos (the Limiter).  The name is perhaps an echo of the Egyptian Horus.  The peculiar task of Horos is to separate the fallen aeons from the upper world of aeons.  At the same time he becomes (first, perhaps, in the later Valentinian systems) a kind of world-creative power, who in this capacity helps to construct an ordered world out of Sophia and her passions.  He is also called, curiously enough, Stauros (cross)... (The Enclyclopaedia Britannica, Chisholm, v.27, 1911)
