NAME ROOT:
ÍON / IóLE áNTHOS > IOLANTHE
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ÍON (Ίον) IóLE (Ιόλη) áNTHOS (ἄνθος)
MEANING:
This name is of Ancient Greek origin, composed of two elements: “Íon (Ίον) ióle (Ιόλη)” (violet, purple) plus “ánthos (ἄνθος)” (flower, blossom, bloom, peak, brightness, brilliance). In turn the name means “violet, purple flower”. Blessed Yolanda of Poland (1235–1298) was the daughter of King Béla IV of Hungary and Maria Laskarina. She was the sister of Saint Margaret of Hungary and Saint Kinga (Cunegunda). One of her paternal aunts was the great Franciscan saint, Elizabeth of Hungary. The name Jolánka is also used by the writer András Dugonics for the heroine of his 1804 novel "Jólánka Etelkának Leánya". In addition to being based on the name Iolanda it could also come from the word “jóleán” meaning "good girl". Iole which is somehow linked to the name, in Greek mythology was the daughter of Eurytus, king of the city Oechalia.
