Meaning and origin of the name Phoenix

Ancient Greek name (Φοῖνιξ) meaning - "dark-red; purple; crimson".
Phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally "sun-city" in Greek). It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. In very few stories they are able to change into people.

The Romans, it symbolizes the divine origin of the Roman Empire, its rebirth and eternal existence. In early Christianity phoenix is always found on mortuary slabs: here its value is victory over death.
