: I'm trying to find out if the greek word for 'freedom' has a double meaning... like psyche means soul but also butterfly.
I don't think 'psyche' also means butterfly. The only word for butterfly is 'petalouda' -which is probably derived from two greek words 'peta' -which means flys and 'louloudi' which means flower ie a 'flying flower' -we know how colourful most butterflies are.
The greek word for freedom (liberty) is 'Eleftheria'. 'Eleftheria' can also be a woman's name. Other than that there is no double meaning that I am aware of.
