English (Strong)

probably from the same as ἀρτέμων; prompt; Artemis, the name of a Grecian goddess borrowed by the Asiatics for one of their deities: Diana.

English (Thayer)

Ἀρτέμιδος and Ἀρτεμιος, ἡ, Artemis, that is to say, the Song of Solomon -called Tauric or Persian or Ephesian Artemis, the goddess of many Asiatic peoples, to be distinguished from the Artemis of the Greeks, the sister of Apollo; cf. Grimm on 2 Maccabees , p. 39; (B. D. under the word Smith's Bible Dictionary, Diana). A very splendid temple was built to her at Ephesus, which was set on fire by Herostratus and reduced to ashes; but afterward, in the time of Alexander the Great, it was rebuilt in a style of still greater magnificence: Schenkel i., p. 604f, under the word Diana; (Wood, Discoveries at Ephesus, Lond. 1877).

Greek Monotonic

Ἄρτεμις: ἡ, γεν. -ιδος, αιτ. -ιν ή -ίδα· η Άρτεμις, Ρωμ. Diana, η θεά του κυνηγιού, κόρη του Δία και της Λητούς, αδελφή του Απόλλωνα· στον Όμηρο, οι γυναίκες που πέθαιναν ξαφνικά, λεγόταν ότι πλήττονταν από τα ἀγανὰ βέλεα (της Άρτεμης)· πρβλ. Ἀπόλλων·(αμφίβ. προέλ.).

Russian (Dvoretsky)

Ἄρτεμις: ῐδος ἡ Артемида (дочь Зевса и Лето, сестра-близнец Аполлона, богиня луны, впосл. охоты, отождествл. с римской Дианой); ее главные эпитеты у Hom.: χρυσηλάκατος «с золотым веретеном», χρυσηνιος «блистающая золотом», εὐστέφανος «красиво увенчанная (повязкой)», εὐσκοπος «зоркая», χρυσόθρονος «златопрестольная», πότνια θηρῶν «владычица зверей», ἀγροτέρη «охотница», ἰοχέαιρα «стрелометательница» и др.

Etymological

-ιδος, -ιτος
Grammatical information: f.
Meaning: name of a goddess (Il.)
Dialectal forms: Myc. atemito \/Artemitos\/; atimite \/Artimitei\/. Dor. Ἄρταμις, -ιτος; Boeot. id. -ιδος; ῎Αρτεμις, -ιτος Delphi (SIG 671 etc.).
Derivatives: Ἀρτεμίσιος, Ἀρταμίτιος m., also Ἀρτεμισιών, month name (Th.), -ον n. tempel of A. (Hdt.). - ἀρτεμιδήϊον n., ἀρτεμισία f. plant name, s. Strömberg 100.
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: The forms have e\/i , which may point to Pre-Greek. There is further e\/a (s. Fur. 185), which is rather an old phenomenon than a recent assimilation; and there is t\/d (Myc. has -t-: there is a special sign for -d-); note that the forms in -σιον- presuppose a -t- (the -d- can be easily secondary, as seems confirmed by Myc.). -- The name is found in Lydian inscriptions (Artimuś, Artimu-), which in itself does not prove that the name comes from Lydia or Asia Minor (as thought v. Wilamowitz, Hellenistische Dichtung 2, 50; Glaube 1, 324). Lycian has ertemi. -- Improbable is Illyrian origin (from Illyr. *artos bear, Ruipérez Emerita 15, 1ff. and Zephyrus 2, 89ff.). Against the interpretation as bear-godess (to ἄρκτος; lastly Pisani Rev. ét. anc. 37, 149f.) s. Kretschmer Glotta 27, 34, who connects ἄρταμος butcher, which seems very improbable. Improbable vW. -- Nilsson Gr. Rel. 1, 451ff.; s. Ruipérez l. c. for details; Chantraine L'ant. class. 22, 67.

Middle Liddell

[deriv. uncertain].]
Artemis, the Roman Diana, goddess of the chase, daughter of Zeus and Latona, sister of Apollo: in Hom., women who die suddenly are said to be slain by her ἀγανὰ βέλεα: cf. Ἀπόλλων.
