Etymology of the name DIBBARRA.
Meaning of the baby name 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
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
