Etymology of the name GALENE.
Meaning of the baby name GALENE.


GALENÉ (Γαλήνη).  Greek myth name of the goddess of calm who rules over the level surface of the sea, meaning "calm, tranquility," "stillness of the sea." (The New Nation, Morris, 1880)."  There is a Slavic form, Galina.  And see the masculines: Galen, Galien, Galieno, Galenos, and Galenus.

GALENA, or sulphide of lead, a compound of lead and sulphur, is, like the pure metal, of a bluish-grey colour.  It is the commonest of lead ores, and was supposed to exert a calming influence in cases of extreme suffering, hence its Greek name, galene, tranquility, stillness of the sea. (Products of the Empire, Cunningham, 1921)

    1.  Pan.  Did you observe, Galené, what Eris did yesterday at the marriage feast in Thessaly, because she did not herself also receive an invitation to the banquet?
    Gal.  No!  I didnt' participate with you in the entertainment.  For, Panopé, Poseidon bade me meanwhile keep the sea calm.  By the way, what did Eris do, because she wasn't present? (A Second-Century Satirist, Lucian-Sheldon, 1901)
