Meaning of the baby name IBLIS.
Arthurian. A fairy. Lanzelet's wife in Ulrich von Zatzikhoven's Lanzelet.
... Sir Lancelot
reconquers his kingdom, and, with his wife Iblis, reigns over it in
peace, both living to see their children's children, and dying on the
same day, in good old fairy-tale fashion. In fact, the whole of
the Lanzelet has much more the character of a fairy or folk-tale than
that of a knightly romance. (Encyclopedia Britannica, v.16, 1911)
name meaning "despair." It is another name for the jinnee Azazel.
... When Adam was created, and
God commanded all to worship him, Azazel insolently made answer,
"Me hast Thou created of fire, and him of earth: why should I
worship him?" Whereupon God changed the jinnee into a devil,
and called him Iblis or Despair. In hell he was made the
standard-bearer of Satan's host. (The Reader's Handbook of Famous
Names in Fiction, Allusions, &c., Brewer, 1899)
