Celadonia

Celadonia is an elaborated form of Celadon, referring to a pale greenish-gray color as well as also referring to a type of ceramic pottery with pale green glaze. It comes from French céladon which derives from Ancient Greek Keladon, the name of a character in Ovid’s Metamorphosis. I couldn’t find an exact meaning behind it though I’ve seen it listed as meaning “making a loud noise”. It’s also possible that it’s a variant of Chelidonia, which comes from Latin meaning “Celandine, swallow (bird)”, which would also make it a variant of Celandine.

Nicknames: Cela

Origin: Ancient Greek, Proto-Indo-European
