the story behind our NAME
The name FENIX is the traditional Latin spelling of ‘Phoenix.’
According to Greek mythology, the Fenix is a legendary bird that is reborn by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Linked to the powerful sun, the Fenix dies in a show of flames and combustion of its own making in order to rise again.
In Jewish lore, the Fenix, or Chol, was in the Garden of Eden when Eve was deceived by the serpent to eat the forbidden fruit. Eve tempted all of the other creatures to follow suit, but only the Fenix obeyed God. As a result, God granted the Fenix eternal life through the ability to live for over 1,400 years and the opportunity for rebirth.
The Fenix became a Christian symbol and metaphor for Christ’s resurrection. Today, the Fenix symbolizes renewal, immortality, and royalty.
