Diaphanus

For the past few days I have been trying to think of a name for my sweet Hybrid. I wanted her name to be delicate, like she is and to have the right meaning that describes her as I see her. A delicate princess fairy, an ethereal beauty full of grace with a kind and loving heart. She has no wings, yet is as light as a feather and can float through the air on a whim, just like a dandelion seed.

It required considerable researching to discover the name that would be perfect for her, but I finally hit the jackpot! Diaphanus.


The origin of Diaphanus, dates back to the period between 1605 & 1615 and is derived from the Medieval Latin meaning for transparent. In modern times, it is spelt "diaphanous" which means - very sheer and light; delicately hazy; cobweblike; almost completely transparent or translucent; gossamer like.
