Meaning of the baby name OUAPHRIS.

  

OUAPHRIS (Οὐάφρις).  Manetho's Greek form of Hebrew Hophra ("of the sun"), from Egyptian Uahprahet ("the sun enlarges his heart"). (The American Cyclopaedia, Ripley-Dana, v.1, 1883; Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature, McClintock, v.4, 1894).

    Pharaoh-hophra (the Uahbra of the Egyptian monuments, the Ouaphris of Manetho, and the Apries of Herodotus) was the fourth king of the twenty-sixth dynasty.  He reigned nineteen years, from B.C. 589 to 570.  He was a warrior, and appears to have conquered the combined fleets of Cyprus and of Sidon in a sea fight.  He failed at last in an attack on the Greek colony of Cyrene.  His army, in consequence, revolted; he was captured, confined, and ultimately put to death. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894).
