986 Greek Baby Names With Meanings

When talking about Greek baby names, Apollo, Alexander, Aphrodite, and Trojan are the ones that strike first to the mind. But there’s a lot to Greek baby names beyond these. Sophia, which has been one of the leading baby girl names for decades, originated in Greece. We bet you didn’t know that. And Luke, which most of us presume to be a Biblical name, also has Greek roots. Yes, this gorgeous coastal country has no shortage of baby name inspiration.

In Greece, baby names are not just labels to differentiate one child from another. These names are more like tradition, passed down from one generation to another. The first born baby boy is named after paternal grandfather, and first born girl is named after her paternal grandmother.
