Etymology of the name EPIPHANIA.
Meaning of the baby name EPIPHANIA.

  

EPIPHANIA.  Latin form of Greek Epiphaneia (q.v.), meaning "manifestation," "visible appearance of Christ."

    The ancient Greek Church celebrated on the 6th of January the birth of Christ, His manifestation to the Gentiles, and the baptism in the Jordan.  Their titles, Theophania and Epiphania, were adopted by the Latins, and when the Latin feast of the Nativity was accepted by the Greek Church, this latter was frequently called Epiphania, while the true manifestation-day was called by a name meaning the lights, from the multitude of candles in the churches in honour of the Light of the World and the Light of Baptism. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
