Abraxas


Gender: Masculine

Origin: Hebrew

Meaning: “Blessing; Blessed name.”

Pronunciation: (uh-BRAHK-suhs)

Detail: This name is either originating from the Hebrew ha-berak-hah “blessing” (one of the oldest magical spells is close in meaning – abracadabra “to bless” from ha braka dabara).

Or that it arose from the joining of two Coptic words: abrak and sax meaning “a holy, revered and blessed name.”

Abraxas Malfoy was the grandfather of Draco Malfoy.
