Each word in Sanskrit can be interpreted in myriad ways, and thus a single word can have several different and unrelated meanings.
A famous example of such "multiplicity" would be the word, "linga" -
which may be interpreted as - a Mark, Symbol, idol, gender, male organ, evidence, symptoms, et al.
Please give details about the etymology of the word "Lakṣhmī".
I'd like to know the most commonly accepted meaning of the word "Lakṣhmī".
Also, Please give other meanings of the word too, most preferably from scriptures, which clearly explain the meaning/etymology of the word and why it's so.
Further, why is Devī Lakṣhmī named so? Any specific incident related to that?
