Meaning of the baby name RHADAMANTHUS.

  

RHADAMANTHUS (Ῥαδάμανθυς).  Greek form of Egyptian Rhotamenti (q.v.), a title of Osiris as judge of the souls of the dead in the lower world or Amenti (Hades). (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

... The ancient poets have, by a pretty general consent, divided the regions of the dead, into two principal mansions: Elysium, which was the residence of the virtuous; and Tartarus, where the wicked were tormented.  Somewhat between these two mansions, was the field of truth, where the rigorous but equitable judges Minos, Rhadamanthus, and Æacus, dispensed to the souls of the deceased the sentence of rewards or punishments which they merited... (A New System of Mythology, Mayo, 1812).
