The place-name Avlemonas
For the naming of Avlemonas there are two versions: According to the first it comes from αβλέμμων< α (the prefix a- expressing negation or absence) + βλέμμα (sight) “a place that cannot be reached by sight”, which explains the somehow hidden location of the village. According to the second version the place name is an alteration of the word “ευλίμενος”, which means a good harbour.
