Boy Names of Greek language or origin

Greek names for baby boys, with 4112 entries. Grecian names have crossed from being the domain of the Greeks to much of the Euro-American world, in the same way that Greek thought has shaped western worldview. Names that are popular in the English-speaking world – names like Andrew, Deon and Nicholas all have their origins in old Greek. Even Slavic names such as Alexander and Dimitri have their origins in old Greek, and were probably adopted by the Russians during the 9th century christianization of Kievan Rus, a period when names of Greek orthodox saints became popular.

Greek names are very popular baby names for boys. At the height of their usage in 1984, 22.032% of baby boys were given Greek names. There were 79 Greek names ranked within the top 1000 baby names then. Greek names have since experienced a decline in frequency, but are nonetheless used on a very heavy scale now.
