The prince of the eunuchs evidently thought their names were inappropriate, so renamed them in honor of the gods of Babylon. Thus, Daniel became Belteshazzar (“Favored by Bel”); Hananiah became Shadrach (“Illumined by Rak,” the sun god); Mishael was renamed Meshach (“Belonging to Shak,” the wine goddess); and Azariah was changed to Abednego (“Servant of Nego,” considered to be equivalent to Lucifer). One can imagine that this was deeply resented by these godly young men, who resolved more firmly than ever to stay true to the true God of creation, at all costs. Dan 1:7
Shadrach; Meshach and Abednego WAS Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah
IS YOUR NAME MORE POWERFUL THAN GOD?
Daniel's name means “God is my judge”.......
it was changed to Belteshazzar, which means “favored by Bel.”
MAN IS NAME AND NAME IS MAN.
Hananiah's means “Beloved of the Lord” was changed to Shadrach which means “illumined by Rak,” the sun god).
Mishael (“Who is as God?”) was called Meshach (“who is like Shak,” the Babylonian Venus), and Azariah (“The Lord is my help”) became Abednego (“servant of Nego,” the god of fire).
