|"Blue Lips" by Galapril. June 2010|
So this is a question people ask me over and over again, and I remembered I once posted this very thorough answer to the question "What does "Galapril" means?" Hope this helps!
Galapril has actually a lot of meanings to me. First off it should be seperated between Gal and April. Gal is short for Galathea. One of my favorite girlsnames. It is ancient Greek and means "she who is milk-white". The name was seen in classical myths - Pygmalion, Leucippus and Ovid's Acis and Galatea where Galatea is a seanymph that loves Acis. Galathea is a common metaphor for a statue that has come to life, after the statue of Pygmalion. Galathea is also the name of a ship, which was part of Danish expeditions in the name of science throughout the world.Galathea is also a genera of squat lobsters :D
April is a name I use very often. It is not my legitimate name, even though I've considered changing it. I'm born in April I love the month of April, but the name is primarily inspired by a danish song called "jeg vælger mig april" - "I choose April". I've translated it before on the blog. My mother's mother's favorite month was April, and she meant a lot to me. She always talked about the beauty of April. Last "gal" means "mad" or "crazy" in Danish, but can of course also be seen as "gal"="girl/woman". Gal is also a hebrew name meaning "wave" or "sea". April is an English name, originated in Latin from "Aperire" which means "to open" referring to the opening of flowers - blossoming.
So! There is a lot of meaning to it! :D
