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

  

UCCUMU.  Babylonian.  One of the dogs of Marduk, meaning "the despoiler."

    Another theory brought forward by the Rev. A. H. Sayce and Josef Grivel, "Transactions of Society of Biblical Archaeology," vol. ii. part 2, p. 243, and vol. iii. part 1, p. 136, identifies Nimrod with Merodach, the god of Babylon; partly on the ground of the similarity of name, Merodach being Amar-utuci or Amar-ud in Accadian, partly because Merodach the patron-deity of Babylon stood in the same relation to that city that Asshur did to Assyria (see Micah v.6), and partly since we find Merodach called "a hero" like Nimrod in Genesis, and assigned "four divine dogs" as though he were a hunter.  These dogs are Uccumu "the despoiler," Acculu "the devourer," Icsuda "the capturer," and Iltebu "the carrier away."  Merodach, it must be remembered, is always represented as a man, and is armed with weapons of war. (The Chaldean Account of Genesis, Smith, 1880).
