Meaning of the baby name IGIGI.

  

IGIGI.  An order of superhuman beings in Babylonian religion.  The name means "the strong ones."  The Igigi seem to correspond to the Anunnaki (q.v.); but the former are spirits of heaven, the latter of earth.  They are sent forth on missions by the higher gods such as Anu (q.v.), their father, Bel (q.v.), Ninib (q.v.), Marduk (q.v.).  They are found throughout the whole period of the history of Babylonia and Assyria.  In the Epic of Marduk, the army of Tiamat (q.v.) is described as "all the Igigi"; and when Marduk has conquered and set all the world in order, he is adored and praised by the Igigi. (An Encyclopedia of Religions, Canney, 1921)
