Etymology

The biblical GN, ASSYRIA is the English name of the original homeland of the people called ASSYRIANS. One of the capital cities of the ASSYRIANS was called Aลกลกur, from the same root. The city and the people no doubt took their name from the name of their national deity Aลกลกur. As has been pointed out, the biblical genealogies name โ€œAsshur, . . . the son of Shemโ€ (1 Chronicles 1:17) as the eponymous ancestor of the ASSYRIANS (Reynolds, DBM 85).
