Meaning of the baby name BARKAN.


BARKAN.  Variant spelling of Mongolian Bourkan (q.v.), meaning "god." (A Vocabulary of Proper Names, in Chinese and English, of Places, Persons, Tribes, and Sects, &c., Smith, 1870)

BARKAN.  Arabic name, which seems to be from Chaldee barkan ("brilliant"), itself from the Hebrew root barak ("to flash like lightning; volcano"). (A Dictionary of English Etymology, Wedgwood, 1878; The American Catholic Quarterly Review, vol.21, 1896)

... So they passed the night in the city, purposing to depart on the morrow, but, next morning, as they were about to set forth behold, they espied a great host advancing upon the city, with horses neighing and kettle-drums beating and trumpets braying and riders filling the earth for they numbered threescore and ten thousand Marids, flying and diving, under a King called Barkan.  Now this Barkan was lord of the City of Carnelian and the Castle of Gold, and under his rule were five hill-strongholds, in each five hundred thousand Marids; and he and his tribe worshipped the Fire, not the Omnipotent Sire. (Lady Burton's Edition of Her Husband's Arabian Nights, McCarthy, 1887)
