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

  

APRIES (Ἀπρίης).  Herodotus's Greek form of the Egyptian Uahprahet (q.v.), meaning "the sun enlarges his heart."  In the bible, the name is Hophra. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).

    CLXI. Ἐξεδέξατο Ἀπρίης] Apries succeeded him.  The name Apries seemed to me a word of the Ionian dialect; for Athenaeus, in translating into the ordinary dialect a passage from Ctesias, renders it by Aprias.  But I find the word written in Diodorus Siculus, as it is in Herodotus. (Larcher's Notes on Herodotus, v.1, 1829).
