Greek Names

Is your name Greek?


Apart from the most obvious Greek names like Helen or Alexander, there are also many names that have journeyed through other languages and come out as quite different from their Greek root. The list below is a few Greek names and their meanings. Perhaps you have a Greek name and didn't even know it, or maybe you'll find inspiration here for what to name your baby. Here, I have also put the names with Greek letters, as well as their Greek pronunciation.
