Meaning of the baby name NUSKU.

  

NUSKU.  Assyrian-Babylonian fire-god.  He came to be identified with Nabu (q.v.) and amalgamated with Gibil (q.v.).

    Nusku was a wise god, the messenger of the gods, and the bearer of the brilliant sceptre.  He is spoken of as sprung from Ea (q.v.), and as the first-born of Bel (q.v.). (An Encyclopedia of Religions, Canney, 1921)

... Yet by the Assyrians, in one and the same sentence, he is called:  "The one begotten by Anu," the "firstborn of En-lil," the "sprout of the ocean," the "creature of the lord of heaven and earth." [see Jensen, Kosmologie, p. 273.]... (Bel, the Christ of Ancient Times, Radau, 1903)
