What Does Halcyon Mean?
(Hal-see yan) A time of peace and tranquility charming winds and waves into calmness, Halcyon is Greek for a kingsfisher bird, compounded of hals (the sea) and kuo (to brood on). The ancient Sicilians believed that the kingfisher laid its eggs and incubated for fourteen days, before the winter solstice, on the surance of the sea, during which time the waves of sea were always unruffled.
