This name derives from the Ancient Greek “huákinthos (ᾰ́κινθος) yákinthos ‎(υάκινθος)”, meaning “Hyacinth, reddish-blue or deep purple color”. Jacinth is the name of a flower and precious stone of this color. The Hebrew word used for Jacinth in the Bible is “leshem”. 1) Hyacinthus is a divine hero from Greek mythology. His cult at Amykles southwest of Sparta dates from the Mycenaean era. A temenos or sanctuary grew up around what was alleged to be his burial mound, which was located in the Classical period at the feet of Apollo's statue. 2) Jacinth is one of the precious stones that were to form the foundation of New Jerusalem, specified in Middle Persian as “yʾknd (yākand)”, but that means “ruby”. 3) Hyacinthus is a small fragrant flower of blue- Violet color, considered native to the eastern Mediterranean, including Turkey, Turkmenistan, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and the Palestine region. 4) Francisco Marto (1908–1919) and his sister Jacinta Marto (1910–1920), also known as Blessed Francisco Marto and Blessed Jacinta Marto, together with their cousin, Lúcia dos Santos (1907–2005) were the children from Aljustrel near Fátima, Portugal, who said they witnessed three apparitions of an angel in 1916 and several apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1917.
