THIRD GENERATION OF THE MOON GOD
(31), (32) NANNA / NANNAR: THE MOON GOD of UR
Nanna is the Moon god of the Sumerians unlike any other Sumerian god. He has ALL the "divine" properties, especially to the Sumerians the fruitful life of cattle. His other properties are dealing with the destinies of all living things. Hence his name of "Lord over all Fates". Nanna was considered the sole benefit of Ur, in that he was the wealth of his Capital City, Ur - the city of Abraham. Genesis 11:28 and 15:7)
As far as Nannas heavenly attributes or properties, he appears to be heavens splendor itself and the Universal Lord. Actually, Lord of the Universe! As "Lord of the Calendar" or those who choose to "change times and seasons" Nanna was justifiably associated with the cult of phases of the Moon. The greatest icon representative of him is the crescent Moon. Similar to later corrupt legends of old lunar jokes, such as cows jumping over the Moon, Nanna was represented as riding a winged bull. In this iconography the Moon is riding the Bull! The Sumerian writings say he was the Royal husband of Ningal, mother of the Sun god Ute or Utu. (1)
Comparative studies show Nanna as the original Semitic Babylonian god of the Moon Cult, who some say originally came over into Ur of the Chaldees with the Semitic Arabian invaders from the South of Ur. Consequently, Nanna may have other names and connections. For instance, the Sumerians call him Nanna or Nannar, the son of Enlil, while the Akkadians call him "Sin". The stories and available data suggests that he was placed independently into and among the earliest gods of Ur further suggesting a political son-ship to Enlil. Nanna does not seem to be the genetic son of Enlil. All texts suggest he was implanted.

(34), (34a) SUKESI / Sukesha ( Daksa ).
What is the Paternity of Nanna? Son of Enlil or Ishkur? In the Hindu legends Nanna is Daksa the Moon God. Daksa is another name for SUKESI, the son of Brahma and a titan wife of the Rakshasa. The Hindu Epic Ramayana identifies SUKESI as the son of the Sage Vidyutkesha, the famous son of Heti and Praheti. Notice the termination kesha in SU-kesha and VIDYUT-kesha. Also notice that Heti and Praheti are the two Titans or Daityas born from The Water of Creation, obviously a type of the Noahic Flood.
The genealogy runs as follows:
HETI w/w Praheti; .w/w Bhaya(Sister of Kala) SANDHYA
s.VIDYUTKESHA w/w Salakatanta GRAMANI
s.SUKESHA(Sukeshi) w/w Devavati
s.SUMALI /s. MALI / s.MALYAVAN
