I am curious what the title of Quddus means. Was it Baha'u'llah who gave Quddus this name? I understand, I think the new name was given at the same time Tahirih was also given her name/title.
If anyone can recommend more reading about this, I would appreciate it.

Quddus, Moḥammad-ʿAli Bārforuši (b. Bārforuš, 1238/1822; d. Bārforuš, 23 Jomādā II 1265/16 May, 1849), a prominent Bābi figure who accepted the Bābi religion when still a young clergyman of 22 years and was later given the spiritual title “Quddus” (lit. ‘absolutely holy’ or ‘the most holy’) by the Bāb.

The Bab and Quddus in the Bible
In Some Answered Questions, Abdul Baha speaks of the Bab and Quddus as the fulfillment of prophecy in Revelation. Hence, some indication of the station of Quddus!!
“And after three days and a half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them that saw them.” 15 Three days and a half, as we before explained, is twelve hundred and sixty years. Those two persons whose bodies were lying spiritless are the teachings and the law that Muḥammad established and ‘Alí promoted, from which, however, the reality had departed and only the form remained. The spirit came again into them means that those foundations and teachings were again established. In other words, the spirituality of the Religion of God had been changed into materiality, and virtues into vices; the love of God had been changed into hatred, enlightenment into darkness, divine qualities into satanic ones, justice into tyranny, mercy into enmity, sincerity into hypocrisy, guidance into error, and purity into sensuality. Then after three days and a half, which by the terminology of the Holy Books is twelve hundred and sixty years, these divine teachings, heavenly virtues, perfections and spiritual bounties were again renewed by the appearance of the Báb and the devotion of Jináb-i-Quddús. 16
