Eunice - Meaning of Eunice

What does Eunice mean?

[ 2 syll. eu-ni-ce, eun-ice ] The baby girl name Eunice is pronounced in English as YUW-NiyS †. Eunice is of Old Greek origin and it is predominantly used in the English language. The name's meaning is 'good victory'. It is a biblical name derived from eu meaning 'good, well' ; nike 'victory'. Eunike (Old Greek) is an original form of Eunice. The name was borne in the Bible by the pious mother of Timothy who introduced him to Christianity and groomed his faith. It was consequently adopted by English Puritans in the 17th century. The name was then pronounced with three syllables YUW-NIY-SIY unlike the modern two-syllable rendition.
