Greek Boy Names

Greek Boy Names Baby boys in Greece are usually named after one of their grandfathers. In case another boy in the extended family was previously named after the grandfather, the new baby may be called after the masculine form of one of the grandmothers, if that exists. However, especially in recent years, the parents may decide to give a name to their child that is unrelated to the family.

Some popular Greek boy names that are originally Ancient Greek are Achilles (Αχιλλέας), Alexander (Αλέξανδρος), Aristides (Αριστείδης), Diogenes (Διογένης), Dionysios (Διονύσιος), Euripides (Ευριπίδης), Heracles (Ηρακλής), Leonidas (Λεωνίδας), Menelaus (Μενέλαος), Nestor (Νέστωρ), Nikolaos (Νικόλαος), Orestis (Ορέστης), Pericles (Περικλής), Philip (Φίλιππος), and Socrates (Σωκράτης). Male names from the Old and New Testament include Andreas (Ανδρέας), Daniel (Δανιήλ), Elias (Ηλίας), Emmanuel (Εμμανουήλ), Iakovos (Ιάκωβος), Ioannis (Ιωάννης), Lukas (Λουκάς), Markos (Μάρκος), Michael (Μιχαήλ), Pavlos (Παύλος), Petros (Πέτρος), Stefanos (Στέφανος) and Thomas (Θωμάς). Byzantine names given to boys in Greece today include Alexios (Αλέξιος), Anastasios (Αναστάσιος), Antonios (Αντώνιος), Vasilios (Βασίλειος), Christoforos (Χριστόφορος), Konstantinos (Κωνσταντίνος), Dimitrios (Δημήτριος), Evangelos (Ευάγγελος), Georgios (Γεώργιος), Grigorios (Γρηγόριος), Panagiotis (Παναγιώτης), Spyridon (Σπυρίδων) and Theodoros (Θεόδωρος).
