Meaning

Darius is a Hebrew name that means “to possess good.” It has its roots in the Old Persian language, where it meant “to uphold the good.” In Jewish culture, Darius was the name of several Persian kings who played important roles in the history of the Jewish people. Specifically, King Darius I allowed the Jews to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem after it had been destroyed by the Babylonians. This act is celebrated during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, where the “miracle of the oil” is also observed.
