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

  

TIHAMTU.  Or Tiamat, "Chaos."  The Assyrian goddess Tihamtu represented the principle of chaos, and was given the form of "The Dragon of the Sea," or "The Seven-headed Serpent."  She was the Ταυθὲ of Endemus (Damasc. De Princ., ed. Kopp. p. 324), and in the legend of the creation she is "The Begetter" of the universe.  Bel-Merodach fought against her and her allies in heaven, and drove her back to primaeval darkness.  This war forms the subject of a grand myth, at the bottom of which lay a representation of the defeat and repulse of the storm-cloud and the powers of the night by the Sun-god Merodach, a subject often represented on the walls of the Assyrian temples. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
