NAME ROOT:
HELGI > HEILAGR
MEANING:
This name derives from the Old Norse “helgi > heilagr”, meaning “holy, blessed”. This name and its variants (Hege, Helle, Helge, Helga, and Helka) are a female name, used mainly in Scandinavia, Iceland, Germany, and Hungary. The name was in use in England before the Norman Conquest but appears to have died out afterward. It was re-introduced to English-speaking nations in the 20th century from Germany and the Nordic countries. Eastern Slavic name Olga is derived from it. The Scandinavian male equivalent is Helge or Helgi. The name day is celebrated: Estonia: May 31, Hungary: October 3, Latvia: August 11, Sweden: November 21, Finland: May 31, Greece: July 11.

8
Numerological Values:
8

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.
