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


NIN.  Assyrian name meaning "rebel," which Nimrod also signifies. (The Bible Explainer, Nicholson, 1870).

... Asshur, being either unable to resist the progress of Nimrod's arms, or unwilling to tolerate his idolatrous practices, probably retired before him, and following the upward course of the Tigris fixed himself on the site of Nineveh, which he built, and which subsequently became the seat of the Assyrian empire.  According to this, which we regard as the true interpretation, we recognise in Nimrod and Asshur the respective founders of the Babylonian and Assyrian monarchies... Nineveh; supposed to be compounded of Nin and Naveh, i.e. habitation of Nin or Ninus; but who he was, or for what reason the city was called after him, the scanty records of those remote ages leave us altogether in doubt.  Though some uncertainty rests upon its site, yet it is believed to have lain opposite the modern town of Mosul, on the east bank of the Tigris where the villages of Nunia (also called Nebbi Yunes, i.e. the prophet Jonah), Nimrood, and Kalla Nunia (the castle of Nineveh) preserve to the present day the remembrance of the most ancient capital of the world... (Notes, Critical and Practical, on the Book of Genesis, Bush, v.2, 1839).
