Halcyon is a bold and surprisingly mellow name of Greek origin, referring to a "kingfisher bird." Legend has it that these clever birds bonded with the seas, calming them so they could lay their eggs in a floating nest. The two weeks between storms became known as the winter solstice. This myth inspired the expression "the halcyon days," harkening back to a peaceful time in one's life. You and baby will share an equally rare bond that brings peace to your heart and soothes your soul!
