Meaning:Grain; (Cultivator of) natural abundance
Dagan is a masculine name of Hebrew origin given to those with great promise of abundance. Meaning "grain," Dagan embodies the essence of the West Semitic god of fertility, responsible for ensuring a plentiful harvest. With this comes the favorable interpretation of “(cultivator of) natural abundance.” Though greatly worshipped, Dagan is shrouded in mystery due to a lack of surviving ancient myths. He holds high esteem as the father of Baal—the Middle Eastern equivalent to the Greek god Zeus—and is second only to the supreme deity El. A source of great power and nourishment to all, Dagan is a mighty title to place on your thriving little one.
