Origin:
germanic
Name Root:
*AINA(Z) / *AIWA(Z) *RíKIAZ > *AINA-RIKIAR / *AIWA-RIKIAR > ÆIRíKR > EIRÍKR
Meaning:*
This name derives from the Old Norse name Æiríkr > Eiríkr, a younger form of “*Aina-rikiaR / *Aiwa-rikiaR.” The name is composed of two elements: “*aina(z) / *aiwa(z)” (always, one, alone) plus “*rīkijaz” (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich). The name means “the one and only, ever powerful.” Although the name was in use in Anglo-Saxon England, its use was reinforced by Scandinavian settlers arriving before the Norman Invasion. It was an uncommon name in England until the middle ages when it gained popularity and finally became a common name in the 19th century. In Norway, Sweden, and Finland, the name day for Erik and Eirik is on May 18, commemorating the death of Saint Eric of Sweden. Eric IX of Sweden (Erik the Saint, Eric the Holy, † 1160) was king of Sweden from 1150 to 1960, Eric did much to aid Christianity in his realm and was responsible for codifying the laws of his kingdom, which became known as King Eric’s Law.

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.
