NAME ROOT:
(*LEWA(N)- *HARDUZ / *HARDU- > LEONHARD) (Ó LEANNáIN)
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
LEōN (Λέων)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Germanic name of a 6th century Frankish saint “Leonhard”, composed of two elements: The Ancient Germanic “*lewa(n)-” (Ancient Greek: Leōn “Λέων”; Latin: leō / leōnis) (lion) plus “*harduz / *hardu-” (hard, strong, brave, valiant, powerful one). In turn, the name means “strong as the lion, brave lion, bold as a lion”. Leonard is also an Irish origin surname, from the Gaelic “O'Leannain”, consisting of the prefix "O" (descendant of) and the suffix Leannan (lover). The oldest public records of the surname appear in 1272 in Huntingdonshire, England, and in 1479 in Ulm, Germany. 1) Leonard of Noblac is a Frankish saint closely associated with the town and abbey of Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat, in Haute-Vienne, in the Limousin region of France. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on November 6. 2) Saint Leonardo Murialdo (1828–1900) was an Italian priest from Turin who established the Congregation of Saint Joseph - also known as the Murialdines. He was canonized in 1970.

Numerological Values:

A person with name-number 8 is ambitious, confident, practical and has a great ability to execute plans. They are achievers and seek to reach the top of their field through hard work.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

At the base of the skull or Cerebellum and is also found to be linked to the causal chakra just above the crown chakra to the left in the etheric body. This center enables the individual to achieve advanced out-of-body projection, etheric projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom. I use the word spiritual here because these abilities and ideas are larger than the self and the earth and is were the ability of remote viewing resides.

Color meaning:

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.
