I have been trying to figure out who Lilith is known as in mythology.
So let me just put a list of her aspects below;
Sumerian: Lamaštu and Lilith or Lillake.
Akkadian: Ardat Lili.
Arabian: Karina or Ummu Sibyani.
Chinese: Xiwangmu and Guimu.
Egyptian: Isis and Aset.
Greek: Lamia and Gello.
Turkish: Al Basti.
Most people probably wouldn’t agree that Lilith is known as Isis or even Brigid. But let me send you a link to an article that explains how Lilith, Isis and Gello are all the same. Here is the link;
Now Isis is generally known as Brigid and one person wrote an article explaining that Lilith is connected with Brigid. Here is that article;
Now that we have that out of the way i really have some pressing questions about who Lilith is.
I have found that some people equate her with Belet-Ili who is also known as Baalat Gebal. But the only problem i have with this is that Baalat Gebal is associated with Asherah/Ishtar. Added to that Baalat is also associated with Hathor in Egyptian mythology. But as we all know, Ishtar is known as the Goetia spirit Astaroth. So in order for Lilith to be known as Belet-Ili then we would have to say that she is also known as Astaroth, which is kind of ludicrous in my opinion because Astaroth is known as Astare, Inanna, Ishtar, Venus and Aphrodite among other names; (this is who Astaroth is generally associated with in mythology).
So with this information is it even possible for Lilith to be known as Belet-Ili/Baalat? Because Lilith is already known as Lamstu in Sumerian mythology and in every other aspect she is usually not as loving of a goddess in a few instances, and in most instances she is demonized to look evil, even though her roles throughout mythology are just necessary things that have to be done.
Just let me know what you think about this topic. I need some guidance.
