Name Root:
kdke / ktke > k(n)dke > kandákē
This name derives from the Ancient Greek noun “kandákē (κανδάκη),” which in turn derives from the Egyptian (Meroitic) root “Kdke / Ktke > K(N)Dke,” meaning “glowing.” Kandake or Kentake, also Candace, was the title for queens and queen mothers of Kush’s ancient African Kingdom, also known as Nubia and Ethiopia. In the New Testament of the Christian Bible, a treasury official of “Candace, queen of the Ethiopians” returning from a trip to Jerusalem was baptized by Philip the Evangelist. A legend in the Alexander Romance claims that Candace of Meroë fought Alexander the Great. Alexander never attacked Nubia and never attempted to move further south than the oasis of Siwa in Egypt.
