solina F

pie (proto indo-european)
*SóH₂WL̥ > *SUNNǭ > SōL > SōLāRIS

This name derives from the Latin “sōl > sōlāris”, from the Proto-Germanic “*sunnǭ”, which in turn derives from the Proto Indo-European “*Seh2ul- / *Sh2-en-“, meaning “sun, solar”. The name is cognate to Germanic “Sol”, Sanskrit “Surya”, Greek “Helios”, Lithuanian “Saulė”. Today, "sōl" is still the main word for sun in Romance languages. The sun is a symbol of light, life and hope. This name is linked to "sunday (sun's day)", from the Old English "Sunnandæg", Old High German "sunnun tag".
