athanásios

OTHER SCRIPTS:
greek (Αθανάσιος)
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
A- THáNATOS / THNḗISKō > ATHANáSIOS / āTHANASíā
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
A- (α-) THáNATOS (θάνατος) THNḗISKō (θνῄσκω) ATHANáSIOS (Αθανάσιος) āTHANASíā (ᾱ̓θᾰνᾰσῐ́ᾱ)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Athanásios (Αθανάσιος) āthanasíā (ᾱ̓θᾰνᾰσῐ́ᾱ)”, composed of two elements: “a- (α-)” (absence of, privative prefix) plus “thánatos (θάνατος) thnḗiskō (θνῄσκω)” (to die, death, corpse). In turn the name means “immortal, resurrection”. The name Thanassis or Athanasios in its full form is known since the antiquity, although it was not that much in use by ancient Greeks. For the Greek Orthodox Church, the name is associated with Athanasios of Alexandreia, also known as Saint Athanasius or Athanasios the Great. He was episcope and Patriarch of Alexandria in Egypt and he is considered one of the four Fathers of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Athanasios was mostly known due to his strong opposition against Arians during the Byzantine Era.

A person with name-number 8 is ambitious, confident, practical and has a great ability to execute plans. They are achievers and seek to reach the top of their field through hard work.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

At the base of the skull or Cerebellum and is also found to be linked to the causal chakra just above the crown chakra to the left in the etheric body. This center enables the individual to achieve advanced out-of-body projection, etheric projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom. I use the word spiritual here because these abilities and ideas are larger than the self and the earth and is were the ability of remote viewing resides.

Color meaning:

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
