Definition

What does MAH mean?

Mah
Mångha (måŋha) is the Avestan for "Moon, month", equivalent to Persian Māh (Old Persian māha). It is the name of the lunar deity in Zoroastrianism. The Iranian word is feminine, and consequently the personification of the Moon is a goddess, as in Greco-Roman tradition but in marked contrast both to Vedic religion and to her Mesopotamian predecessor Sin. Although Mah is not a prominent deity in the Avestan scripture, her crescent was an important symbol of royalty throughout the Parthian and Sassanid periods. The Iranian word is cognate with the English moon, from PIE *mēns; its equivalent is recorded as the Sanskrit for "month" (māsa), but not as a name of the Indo-Aryan lunar deity.
