Could you please provide a reference for the `receptacle of glory' bit?

Standardly, atri is derived from a root ad cognate with and meaning to eat. Atreya is simply generally related to, but more specifically, descendant of, atri. I am, therefore, confused by the second bit ... (Is it supposed to be a mythological bit, or a literal meaning?)
