Etymology of the name RA.
Meaning of the baby name RA.


RÂ.  Also spelled (q.v.).  "To Make, to Dispose."  In Egyptian mythology the deity of the mid-day sun, of which the other deities were more or less manifestations.  Ra was adored all over Egypt, but chiefly at Heliopolis as the most striking manifestation of the Supreme Being, and the organiser of the world, of which the material fabric had been made by Pthah.  He was represented as a man with the head of a sparrow hawk, and holding the usual cucufa staff and cross of life.  Although a benevolent deity, in anger at the sins of men, he once, assisted by Tefnut, destroyed the entire human race, which he afterwards revived afresh out of the blood of the slain, at the intercession of Nu and the other deities.  The name Ra is also written with the article, Phre.  See also HorusRa, a royal scribe, and superintendent of the granaries of the North and South.  Period uncertain.  Ra, a scribe of the offerings of an unknown deity.  The period when he lived is uncertain, but his monument is in the Leyden Museum. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
