The 50 names of Marduk
A comparison

I have taken the time to look up the fifty names of Marduk within the Necronomicon, and the Enuma Elish and have combined them as best as I was able into one concise list. I have not worked with any of the individual entities on a personal level so your experiences may vary.

If you would like to discuss any of the fifty names then feel free to check out the Occult Corpus thread: Concerning the fifty names

Forward notes:
I have abbreviated the Necronomicon as Nec and mainly refer to the ancient tablets as Text.

Variations in spelling are in (parentheses) the first name in all cases is taken from Text.

Where names do not match the numbers the number I use the one listed in the Text, and the one that belongs in the Nec will be placed in [brackets].

Where names coincide with a preceeding name I have seperated them with underscores.


(01) Marduk
Marduk is the Name of Names, the name given to Marduk at birth and as such is an actual Godform above all the others. Marduk as a godform has far more power then any of the following names and has many of their combined attributes. Use this name at your own risk.

MARUKKA appeases the Igigi and pleases the Anunnaki for he knows their hearts (and secrets). He is stubborn to summon and should only be called by the purest of heart. He can assist in discovering secrets for little is known that he does not know.

MARUTUKKU holds the Arra and sealed the Ancient ones in their caves. He is a protector spirit and if given praise may assist the priest in protective magicks for the home, hearth, and self.

BARASHAKUSHU took hold of his reins and controls himself, but the priest should likely not fear, as he is also a kind-hearted spirit, and may work miracles out of the kindness of his heart.

This entity is a King (Lugal) who is exalted as a god as his fathers. LUGALDIMMERANKIA is Commander of the Wind Demons and that he has quelled the troubled waters. He fought beside Marduk Kuros in the great war and his considered a lord in heaven as well as in the underworld.

This is the Watcher of the Gods as he knows the ways into and out of both the heavens and the Underworlds, so none may pass without his knowing. He is Sub-Commander of the Wind Demons under LUGALDIMMERANKIA. The gods themselves may fear his name and he will gladly be put to fight against the Demons that taunt you.

This is the first power which Anu gave to Marduk in the great assembly. He is the great light, and a mighty leader and will protect the gods and their lands. He wields the flaming sword and controls the watchers. It is unknown whether a mortal can control his power.

This is the second power which Anu gave to Marduk in the great assembly and has the power to raise the dead (both god and man). He can destroy the wayward foe and no man passes unto death without his knowing.

(09) NAMRU
This entity is the third name that Anu gave to Marduk in the great Assembly and is a being of great light and illumination. And dispenses wisdom to the priest.


ASARU, ASARUALIM, and ASARUALIMNUNNA seem to be the gift of Anshar, Lahmu, and Lahamu according to the quoted text below.
Three each of his names have Anshar, Lahmu, and Lahamu proclaimed;
Unto the gods, their sons, they did utter them:
"We have proclaimed three each of his names. (160)

GISHNUMUNAB is NOT in the Necronomicon and NINNUAM is NOT in the ancient text. If anyone has dealt with NINNUAM I would be VERY pleased to hear from you about it! As such, I have maintained the numbers as (text) [NEC] all previous numbers match in both manuscripts so were left as is.


GISHNUMUNAB Created man and the worlds regions. It was this power which destroyed Kingu and his legions and who formed man from their substance.

LUGALABDUBUR assisted in the destruction of Tiamat and her forces by discovering which weapons she was creating. He fought AZAG-THOTH with skill because his defenses are suburb from both a frontal and rear attack.

This pre-eminent power is revered for his great intelligence. He has knowledge of things not yet made and of all things already created.

(50) [49] NEBIRU
NEBIRU holds the key to the gate between heaven and earth so that the gods must wait on him before they can cross over from the stars. He is the brilliant star in the night sky saying: "He who the midst of the Sea restlessly crosses, let 'Crossing' be his name, who controls its midst."

(0)[50] NINNUAM
This is the Power of Marduk, lord of lords. It is he who determines the dynasties of man and the laws of nations. His power is too awesome for the priest to muster.


"May they keep the stars on their course!
May they guide the gods with justice!
May they vanquish the enemies of man!
When the Days of man have grown old and Ancient Ones again rise,
May they make them recede back into the depths!
At their name may the Elder gods rejoice!
May Anu speak:
"The Lord of the Lands! May all the gods proclaim!"
May Enlil speak:
"The Lord of the Lands! May all the gods proclaim!"
May Enki speak:
"May those who the father's proclaim in name,
as I have proclaimed. Like me shall they be.
May all the rites be combines and the Covenant formed.
