Ancient names ending with bazos (or bazus), eg megabazos(great-x), Artabazos (again great-x), Pharnabazos.

And Dates (Mithradates, Tiridates).

I know Mithra was a deity, what does the second half of the name mean (dates).

Please note I know who these people are, I'm interested in the meaning of the second part of their names.
