Meaning of the baby name KAMBUJIYA.

  

KAMBUJIYA (کمبوجیه).  Old Persian name meaning "the Kambujien" or "Crown Prince Kambuja."  In Latin, Cambyses.

It has been often remarked that the name, or one very similar, occurs more than once in the East as an ethnical and geographical designation.  Thus we find Camboja a territory in India, Kamoj a tribe of the Kafirs in Cabul; and a territory named Cambysene, situated in the north on the Kur, is known to Greek geographers.  In the same region there was a river called Cambyses, the modern Jora.  Perhaps with Spiegel (Eranische Alterthumskunde, vol. ii. p. 294) we may regard the personal name Kambujiya as originally an adjective, meaning belonging to Kambuja. (Encyclopedia Brittanica, 9th ed., v.4, 1894)
