Meaning of the name Narcissus

Ancient Greek name (Νάρκισσος) [nárkissos] denotation - "daffodil (flower)".

Narcissus or Narkissos possibly derived from the word νάρκη [narki] denotation - "numbness; paralysis".

Narcissus in Greek mythology was a hunter from the territory of Thespiae in Boeotia who was renowned for his beauty. He was exceptionally proud, in that he disdained those who loved him. As divine punishment he fell in love with his own reflection in a pool, not realizing it was merely an image, and he wasted away to death, not being able to leave the beauty of his own reflection.

The name from the list of seventy disciples of Christ in the Eastern Christian tradition. Except the twelve apostles [Andrew brother of the Apostle Peter (the fisherman from Bethsaida, a disciple of John the Baptist), Peter (he is Simon son of John, also called Cephas), John the Evangelist, James son of Zebedee, Philip of Bethsaida, Bartholomew aka Nathaniel, Matthew the tax collector (also Levi Alpheus), Thomas, James the son, Thaddeus son of Alpheus (also known as Jacob or Judah Levi), Simon the Zealot (also Simon the Zealot) and Judas Iscariot (who betrayed Jesus)] Jesus Christ also chosen seventy others: Agabus, Aquila, Amplus, Ananias, Andronicus, Apelles, Apollos, Aristarchus, Aristobulus, Artemas, Archippus, Asyncritus, Achaicus, Barnabas, Gaius, Euodias, Epaphras, Epaphroditus, Epenetus, Erastus, Hermas, Hermes, Zenas, James, Jason, Justus, Herodion, Carpus, Cleopas, Clement, Quadratus, Crescens, Crispus, Quartus, Linus, Lucius, Luke, Mark, John, Nicanor, Olympas, Onesimus, Onesiphorus, Parmenas, Patrobus, Prochorus, Pudens, Rufus, Silas, Silvan, Simeon, Sosipater, Sosthenes, Stachys, Stephen, Tertius, Timon, Timothy, Titus, Tychicus, Trophimus, Urban, Thaddeus, Philemon, Philip, Philologus, Fortunatus, Dionysus, Phlegon, Simeon Niger.
