Meaning of the baby name DIBBARRA.


DIBBARRA.  Dibbarra or more correctly Girra is a Babylonian deity.  He was a god of war and pestilence, a solar deity who in course of time came to be identified with Nergal (q.v.).

    In the Epic of Dibbarra he figures as the warrior, the god of war.  He is attended by the god Ishum (q.v.), who describes his deeds.  Dibbarra sends a "governor" to attack Babylon.  He is to kill young and old alike.  Through the power of Dibbarra great slaughter is executed in the city.  The blood of the inhabitants, the "servitors of Anu and Dagan," flows like water.  On another occasion Dibbarra afflicts Uruk.  The just and the unjust suffer alike.  Then Ishum proposes a war against the gods, and of men against men, a kind of Armageddon.  Dibbarra consents.  Country shall fight against country, house against house, man against man, brother against brother.  Afterwards the Akkadian shall come and conquer all.  By the Akkadian Hammurabi seems to be meant.  After Dibbarra has wrought great havoc, Ishum seeks to appease his wrath.  His entreaties are successful, and Dibbarra promises to bless those who acknowledge his power, praise, and honour him.  The Babylonians seem to have hung in their houses tablets on which Dibbarra was glorified. (An Encyclopedia of Religions, Canney, 1921)
