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

  

MITHRA.  In Zendic mythology a son of Ahuramazda, and consubstantial with him.  He was the great mediator between the gods and men.  He was also the guardian of men during life, and their judge after death. (Lenormant.)  See Mithra-Daradj. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).  The name means "love" and "sun."

... As to the analogy instituted by Herodotus between the Venus Urania, the Mylitta, and the Mithra, I can only beg my readers to believe that it is one which comparative archaeology fully corroborates: aye! and philology too, I might add; for the Persian mihr, (a contraction for mithra) means: "Mithra," "love," and "sun."... (The Journal of Classical and Sacred Philology, Lightfoot, 1854).
