Meaning of the baby name ANNIBAL.


ANNIBAL.  Carthaginian form of Phœnician Chanbaal (q.v.), meaning "favor of Baal." (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882)

Annibal, a celebrated Carthaginian general, son of Amilcar.  He was educated in his father's camp, and inured from his early years to the labours of the field.  He passed into Spain when nine years old, and at the request of his father, took a solemn oath he never would be at peace with the Romans.  He died in his 70th year, according to some, about 182 years B.C.  The Romans have celebrated the humanity of Annibal, who, after the battle of Cannæ, sought the body of the fallen consul [Æmilius] amidst the heaps of slain, and honoured it with a funeral becoming the dignity of Rome. (A Classical Dictionary, Lemprière, 1831)
