"Meaning of the baby name MERODACH-BALADAN.


MERODACH-BALADAN.  The form of the Babylonian royal name Maruduk-bal-iddina in Hebrew history.  
    Merodach-baladan, the son of Yagina (Ptolemy's Yugaeus), and king of the Caldai (Chaldeans), a tribe settled on the shores of the Persian Gulf.  Tiglath-Pileser II. received tribute from him at Sapiya, in B.C. 731.  In B.C. 721, he conquered Babylon, and made himself king of Babylonia; the Chaldeans henceforth becoming part of the Babylonian population.  In B.C. 711 he sent an embassy to Hezekiah to ask for alliance, and in B.C. 710 was dethroned by Sargon.  On Sargon's death he returned to Babylon, but was defeated at Kis, by Sennacherib, and driven to his ancestral kingdom in the marshes.  Thence he was expelled by Sennacherib, in B.C. 700, and fled to Nagitu-Racci, at the mouth of the Eulaeus, his younger son, Nahid-Merodach, being made king of the sea-coast.  He died before the destruction of Nagitu by the Assyrians, in B.C. 697.  Two kings of the same name have been assumed, but the Cuneiform inscriptions know only of the son of Yagina.  He was the Mardokempadus of Ptolemy. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
