Explain why lines of longitude are called meridians of longitude ?

Answer:
Longitudes are known as  meridians because in Geographical sense, meridians are great circles which are not parallel to each other but intersect each other at the North and  the South Poles. Same stands true of the longitudes. All longitudes are great circles which meet at the Poles.
