The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was
Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was
Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god, and in whom is
the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I told the dream, saying
O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is
in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.
This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men
of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art
able; for the spirit of the holy gods is
Then Daniel, whose name was
Belteshazzar, was astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream be
to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
BELTESHAZZAR . Nebuchadnezzar is said to have conferred this name on the youthful Daniel ( Daniel 1:7 ). The Babylonian form would be Balatsu-usur (“protect his life!”) or, according to Daniel 4:8 , Bel balatsu-usur . The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] and Theodotion employ Baltasar both for it and for Belshazzar (ch. 5); and pseudo-Epiphanius repeats a legend that Nebuchadnezzar wished to make the two men co-heirs.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
This name was given to Daniel by the Chaldeans in the time of the captivity. (Daniel 1:7) And no doubt, the design was evil; that he might in it lose sight both of his own name, and with it the remembrance of the Lord God of his fathers. And what a change it was! Daniel, a compound of Dan, judgment; and I, E1, my God: my judgment is with God, or God is my judge. Whereas, Belteshazzar was a compound of Bel, the idol which the Babylonians worshipped; and Shassar, from Etzar, to lay up. And as the idol's name was derived from Bulat, secret, they both together implied the laying up in secret. From Daniel's history, it should seem to convey the idea, as though the name Belteshazzar was given to him in compliment, on account of his great wisdom; but there can be but little question, that the great object was, that he might, in time, forget the Lord God of Israel, and be incorporated with the Chaldeans.
