Meaning of the baby name DAGAN.

  

DAGAN.  "The Exalted One."  Coequal in antiquity with the cult of Anu in Assyria. (Religion of Babylonia & Assyria, Jastrow, 1898).  Dagan appears as a god before the time of Hammurabi.  It has been suggested that he is the same as Philistine Dagon.  He seems to have been regarded as a god of the earth. (An Encyclopedia of Religions, Canney, 1921)

... The Akkadian god-name Dagan means "the Exalted-one" (Ak. da, "summit" + gan, "the participle of the substantive verb." Sayce).  Various Semitic etymologies were subsequently attached to the word, such as dâgân, "corn" (Sanchou. i. 5) and dag, "fish."... (Researches into the Origin of the Primitive Constellations of the Greeks, Phoenicians, and Babylonians, Brown, v.1, 1899).
