83 Cyprus Baby Names With Meanings

Cyprus isn’t just known for the hospitality, generosity, and friendliness of its people. It also boasts of some of the most amazing and unique baby names.

In Cyprus, children are generally named after the patron saint of their region if they are christened in an orthodox church. Alternatively, the eldest child can be named after his paternal grandfather, and the eldest daughter can be named after the paternal grandmother. The second son can be named after the maternal grandfather and the second daughter after the maternal grandmother. So don’t be surprised if you find cousins with the same name in a Cypriot family.

Cypriots, mainly the Greek Cypriots, often use common Greek surnames, but some are markedly Cypriot. The surname can indicate the family profession or occupation or place of birth or origin. The surname can also include digraphs, which mark the aspirated stops, such as Ττοφή /tʰoˈfi/.

Keeping with the older traditions of Greece and its people, Cypriots also use patronyms, the name of the father, along with the first name and surname.

So if you’re looking for some unique Cypriot baby names, take a look at MomJunction's list below. We have got some of the most beautiful Cypriot baby boy and girl names.
