Markwart seems to have been inspired to this etymology by Yāqūt, Muʿjam II: 475, which he quotes and which tells us that Armāʾīl was a Nabatean from al-Zāb. 67 Cf. Ṭūsī’s ʿAjāʾib, p. 130, where the text, and even more clearly a manuscript variant, gives us to understand that it was Ḍaḥḥāk himself who ate human flesh. 68 For the original meaning of mardās “man-eating”, see, e.g., Roth (1850): 423, and Umīdsālār (1381a), but see also Nöldeke (1920): 19, note 2....

Firdawsī or his source has, consciously or not, associated the original epithet with the Arabic name Mirdās and made it Ḍaḥḥāk’s patronym. 69 Markwart (1931): 68, analyses the name as “the man from Bēth Garmē”....

TL;DR: In this article, the authors deal with the criticism of three sources: Dinawari's al-Akhbar al-Tiwal, the so-called Sirat Anusharwan, and Firdawsi's Shahnama.
Abstract: This cahier deals with the criticism of three sources: Dinawari's al-Akhbar al-Tiwal, the so-called Sirat Anusharwan, and Firdawsi's Shahnama. The need to examine these sources arises from a re-evaluation of Noldeke's Khuday-Nama hypothesis; a case is built for the independence and utility of those three sources; and four test cases follow, in which the sources are put to work on issues of central importance in the history of sixth-century Iran. The conclusion is a narrative integrating the findings of the test cases into the broad picture of Sasanian history.
