🔼Etymology and meaning of the name Potiphera
The name Potiphera is an Egyptian name and its transliteration to this Hebrew form means nothing at all. Phera is a transliteration of Phra, or Ra; the sun-god. According to BDB Theological Dictionary, the word put reflects an Egyptian verb meaning to give, and renders He Whom The Ra Gave. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names reads Priest Of The Sun.
