About Todros ben Kalonymus (Abulafia?), Nasi of Provence

Abulafia (Arabic: أبو العافية‎, Abou l-Afiyya or Abu l-Afia, Hebrew: אבולעפיה, Abulafia) is a surname whose etymological origin is Arabic.

The romanized version of the surname is most commonly Abulafia. Other variations also exist, mostly in English transliterations, including:

Aboulafia, Abolafia, Abouelafia, Aboulafiya, Abulafiya, Aboulafiyya.

Etymologically, the surname is derived from the Arabic words أبو (Abu or Abou; literally "Father" but also carrying the meaning "Owner")' plus the definite article الـ (al or el, or simply l if the preceding word ends with a vowel, to which it attaches itself; meaning "the") and عافية (Afiyya or Afia; literally "Health/Wellbeing" but also carrying the meaning "Power"). Together they form "Abou l-Afiyya" or "Abu l-Afia" (in Medieval Spanish rendered as a single word "Abulafia"), meaning "Father [of] the Health/Wellbeing" or "Owner [of] the Power".
