Name Root:
háls kyéo > alkuṓn / aukuṓn > Alkuoneús
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “alkuṓn (ἀλκυών) aukuṓn (αὐκυών) Alkuoneús (Ἀλκυονεύς),” meaning “Kingfisher.” Some unreliable Greek sources support that it derives from the following two elements: “háls (ἅλς)” (salt, brine, sea, wit) plus “kyéo (κυέω)” (cover, hide “Attic Greek: pregnant”).” Alkyoneus was the king of the Thracian giants, who was slain by Heracles. He was the eldest of the Thrakian Gigantes. He was immortal but only within the confines of his homeland of Pallene. Alkyoneus was a giant, who kept possession of the isthmus of Corinth at the time when Heracles drove away from the oxen of Geryon. The giant attacked him, crushed twelve wagons, and twenty-four of the men of Heracles with a massive block of stone. Heracles himself warded off the stone with his club and slew Alkyoneus.

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.
