WHAT DOES JAXARTES MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Jaxartes

Syr Darya

The Syr Darya, also transliterated Syrdarya or Sirdaryo, is a river in Central Asia. The second part of the name means river, though "Syr Darya River" is the conventional name. The current name dates only from the 18th century; since roughly the Muslim Conquests of Central Asia the river was known as the Seyhun River, i.e., one of the four rivers of Jannah, or paradise. Prior to the coming of Islam to Central Asia, the river's name is recorded by several sources, including those relating to Alexander the Great as the Jaxartes River.
