Meaning of the baby name RESEPH.


RESEPH (רֶשֶׁף).  Biblical.  Hebrew form of Assyrian Resafa, the name of one of the oldest cities of Zenobia.  Reseph is the name of a Canaanite god, meaning "flame, lightning." (Deu. 32:24; Job 5:7; Psalm 78:48).  In 1 Chron. 7:25, it is the name of a grandson of Ephraim. (Nippur; or, Explorations and Adventures on the Euphrates, Peters, v.1, 1899)

... Another principal Palestinian god imported at this time into Egypt is Reseph, whose name means flame, lightning, a biblical word, while the god's name is frequent on Phenician inscriptions.  There are two famous Phenician seal cylinders, of a blue stone, which bear the names in cuneiform writing of citizens of Sidon, of about the fourteenth or fifteenth century B.C., which contain pictures of Reseph, much as he is drawn also on Egyptian monuments. (The Homiletic Review, Funk-Wells, v.29, 1895)
