Equinox Meaning and Origin

Equinox is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin, meaning “equal night.” The word “equinox” is derived from the Latin words “aequus” (equal) and “nox” (night), reflecting the balance between day and night during these celestial events. The name “Equinox” is not commonly used as a given name for individuals. However, it is a term that has significant meaning in the context of astronomy and the changing of seasons. An equinox occurs twice a year, around March 20th and September 22nd, when the plane of the Earth’s equator passes through the center of the Sun. During an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal length all around the world.
