Meanings and history of the name Meissa: | Edit

MEISSA (Lambda Orionis). One of the fainter stars to carry a proper name, Meissa is the Lambda star of Orion. At faint third magnitude (3.5), Meissa is not important in star-lore for its brightness, but for its position, as (with a pair of other stars) it marks the head of the ancient Hunter. Its name, apparently something of a mistake, seems to have been taken from an older (no longer much used) name for Alhena in Gemini (Gamma Geminorum), showing how confused star names can be. More confusing, the significance of the name is rather mysterious, possibly meaning (from Arabic) "the Proudly Marching One."
