What kind of name is Orphic?

According to https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/orphic , “Orpheus was a hero of Greek mythology who was supposed to possess superhuman musical skills. With his legendary lyre, he was said to be able to make even the rocks and trees dance around. In fact, when his wife Eurydice died, he was nearly able to use his lyre to secure her return from the underworld. Later on, according to legend, he was killed at the bidding of Dionysus, and an oracle of Orpheus was established that came to rival the oracle of Apollo at Delphi. Because of the oracle of Orpheus, orphic can mean “oracular.” Because of Orpheus’ musical powers, orphic can mean ‘entrancing.’”

Vocabulary.com describes Orphic as having an import not apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence; beyond ordinary understanding.

An example of how Orphic is used in a sentence: “ Among the factors that stand out in the Orphic construal of a cosmos is the nature of time.”
