Ishtar is a Semitic name of uncertain etymology, possibly derived from a Semitic term meaning "to irrigate".[4] George A. Barton, an early scholar on the subject, suggests that the name stems from "irrigating ditch" and "that which is irrigated by water alone",[5] therefore meaning "she who waters", or "is watered" or "the self-waterer".[5]
