ARARIKIS.  Lithuanian name composed of the elements aras "eagle," and rikis "commander, ruler," hence "eagle commander."  The Gothic form is Arareiks.

After the Ostrogoths lost their hero Giltibaudas, they were indifferent as to who was going to be their king.  Rugians (Rugii were the ancestors of the Latvians), who at that time were united with the Ostrogoths, proclaimed their countryman Ararikis as the king of the Goths. (Guthones, Rackus, 1929).
