Meaning of the baby name KISHAR.

  

KISHAR.  A Babylonian deity.  In the Epic of Marduk (q.v.) Anshar and Kishar are represented as the second pair of deities created.  The first pair were Lakhmu (q.v.) and Lakhamu.  Apsu (q.v.) and Tiamat (q.v.) were already in existence.  The pairs represent the male and female principles.  In this case Anshar is the male and Kishar the female.  The first pair of deities, Lakhmu and Lakhamu are of the nature of monsters.  The second pair, Anshar and Kishar, are of a character intermediate between that of monsters and that of gods proper.  Anshar played a great role as Ashur (q.v.) afterwards.  Kishar disappears. (An Encyclopeida of Religions, Canney, 1921)
