εὐώνυμος euṓnymos, yoo-o'-noo-mos; from G2095 and G3686; properly, well-named (good-omened), i.e. the left (which was the lucky side among the pagan Greeks); neuter as adverbial, at the left hand:—(on the) left.
STRONGS NT 2176: εὐώνυμος
εὐώνυμος, -ον, (εὖ and ὄνομα);
1. of good name (Hesiod, Pindar), and of good omen (Plato, polit., p. 302 d.; legg. 6, p. 754 e.); in the latter sense used in taking auguries; but those omens were euphemistically called εὐώνυμα which in fact were regarded as unlucky, i. e. which came from the left, sinister omens (for which a good name was desired); hence,
2. left (so from Aeschylus and Herodotus down): Acts 21:3; Revelation 10:2; ἐξ εὐωνύμων [cf. Winer's Grammar § 27, 3; § 19 under the word δεξιά; Buttmann, 89 (78)], on the left hand (to the left): Matthew 20:21, 23; Matthew 25:33, 41; Matthew 27:38; Mark 10:37 [R G L], Mark 10:40; Mark 15:27.
