This name means “highly praiseworthy” and derives from the root “Antōnius,” a Gens (Roman family name) to which (Marcus Antonius) belonged. That name initially came from the Etruscan language. Its use as a Christian name was due to the worship of 1) Saint Anthony, a Christian saint from Egypt and a prominent leader among the Desert Fathers who is venerated by Eastern Orthodox Church, Coptic Orthodox Church, Bulgarian Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic Church, and the Coptic Catholic Church. 2) Anthony of Padua (Anthony of Lisbon), a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. Though he died in Padua, he was born and raised in a wealthy family in Lisbon. Noted by his contemporaries for his forceful preaching and expert knowledge of scripture, he was the second-fastest canonized saint and was declared a Doctor of the Church.

Color meaning: Black
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.
