TIRIDATES.  Persian name, probably meaning "given by Tira," from Tira (an ancient god), and -dates from Indo-European da "to give." (The Encyclopaedia Britannica, Chisholm, v.18, 1911; Graeco-Persian Names, Stonecipher, 1918).  Usage: Armenia, Persia.

    The name Tiridates was given by Arrian in his Parthica (preserved by Photius, cod. 58, and Syncellus, p. 539 seq.) to the brother of Arsaces I., the founder of the Parthian kingdom, whom he is said to have succeeded. 
    The name Tiridates is borne by some local kings of Persia, and by some Arsacid kings of Armenia and Georgia.  The best known of the Armenian kings is the Tiridates (A.D. 238-314) who was baptized by Gregory the Illuminator. (Encyclopaedia Britannica, Chisholm, v.26, 1911)
