🔼Etymology of the name Vaizatha

And as the hunt for a meaning is on: NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Son Of The Atmosphere, but gives no etymology. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names refers to an Arabic root and concludes a meaning of White, Sincere, Pure. BDB Theological Dictionary refers to the expert on ancient Persian writing F. Spiegel, who poses that our Biblical name Vaizatha is a transliteration of the Persian name Vahyazdata, meaning Given Of the Best One.
