Meaning of the baby name EGIGIKA.

  

EIGIKA.  Lithuanian form of Spanish Gothic Egica (q.v.), meaning "formidable" or "terror."

Eigika's reign was very stormy.  Several attempts were made to assassinate him, but the conspirators were always apprehended.  In the year 694, Spain was thrown into panic when it was discovered that the Spanish Jews were secretly plotting with the African Mussulman Saracens for the invasion of Eigika's dominions.  In order to punish the Jews as traitors, the king resolved to uproot the Jewish faith.  It was enacted that all the grown-up Jews should be sold as slaves to Christians, that the Jewish property should be confiscated, and that the children were to be taken away from their parents, to be raised in the Christian religion and to be married to Christians.  And this cruel enactment was strictly enforced.  The Jews could never forget such persecutions.  Eigika died in the year 701, leaving Vitika as his successor. (Guthones, Rackus, 1929)
