Mesha means “to be drawn out of water,” the name most likely given to it by Noah. Nax-xuan is a Greek interpretation for the Hebrew, noach tsywn , “Noah’s Zion,” or “Noah’s capital,” a name given to the city by later generations.
Mesha is a variation of Moshe meaning “saved through water” as Moses (Moshe in Hebrew) was saved from the Nile. In the ancient Epic of Gilgamesh , Gilgamesh (Nimrod/Herakles) traveled to the mountains of Mashu to find Utnapishtim (Noah/Nereus), the man who had brought humanity through the Flood. Gilgamesh (Gl--Mesh) means “the man who revealed Mesha.”
Genesis 10:21 refers to Noah’s son, Shem, as the “forefather of all the sons of Eber.” They were said to dwell “toward Sephar, a mountain of the East,” having come “from Mesha” (Genesis 10:30). The traditional Kurdish names for the mountain today are Masher Dag and Mashur Dag meaning respectfully, doomsday mountain and resurrection mountain.
In Shemitic (from Noah’s son, Shem), the place where Noah dwelt was also called Dilmun which means “the abode of the dangling (dried-up),” a fitting epithet for those left high and dry on the mountain after the world-wide Flood. Both names, Mesha and Dilmun, attest to Noah’s salvation from the Flood at this location.

Said by a smart Arktos member,
"A slavic girl may be so sweet. The nicest one you'll ever meet. She might seduce you if she can. You'll think she is your greatest fan. But cross her, and your fate she'll seal, with a will of titan steel."
