This name derives from the Hebrew “Yàdad > Dâvid / Dâvı̂yd > Dāwīḏ,” meaning “beloved, loved by God.” David (~1040–970 BC), son of Jesse, was the second king of Israel during the first half of the 10th century BC. His occurrences, dating back to the Jewish era, are told in the first and second book of Samuel, in the first book of Kings, and the first book of Chronicles. David’s life is of particular importance in the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In Judaism, David was a member of Judah’s tribe, the king of Israel, and the Messiah’s descendant. Saint David (Welsh: Dewi Sant; ~500–589) was a Christian monk and Welsh bishop, venerated as a saint by both the Anglican Church and the Catholic Church. He is the patron saint of Wales.

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.
