Shoa

Meaning: opulent

the mountain district lying to the northeast of Babylonia, anciently the land of the Guti, or Kuti, the modern Kurdistan

The plain lying between these mountains and the Tigris was called su-Edina, i.e., “the border of the plain.” This name was sometimes shortened into Suti and Su, and has been regarded as = Shoa (Ezek. 23:23).

Some think it denotes a place in Babylon.
