REEK mythologY, which has sup- plied so many of the loveliest feminine names in usage today, is re sponslbie for Iris. It has a double sig- nificance and can he translated either as the' rainbow, or the flower which the French car "tear de lie" and Americans term "flag." The former meaning Is preferable, since the Ir of Greek mythology was the godde of the rainbow. In Homer's Iliad she appears as the love- ly, swift-footed messenger of the gods, the feminine counterpart of Hermes. Her special asslgament was the bear- lag of royal commands from Zeus and Hera to the lesser delttes. The flower Iris is undoubtedly re- sponsible for the popularity of the name in Ingland and America. It first shrine of Oslris, or of some ether of the personJflcatlons of the sun as a deity. The designation of the first day of the week as the ,'sun's day" far ante- dates Cbrlstlanity and prevails in lands never ChriStianized. where It has existed from remote atttiqulty. By some an astronomical reason is con- sidered to be the cause of the dedica- tion of the first day of the eeek to the sun. But whatever the origin of the nomenclature "Sunday," it is the day which, from time immemorial, has been especially set apart for dedica- tion to the sun-god. Therefore the baby of the Twentieth century A. D. like the baby of the Twentieth cen- tury B. C., is first take into the sun- light on Sunday.
