How about Zephyr?
EDIT: Sorry, just saw that it can't end in R either. I'll get back to you!
Ok, here are a few - some of these are Greek variants of Hebrew names - but I found them on a Greek name list:

Hmm, what about:
Ambrose (does this work? It doesn't end with an "S", but it ends in an "S" sound...)
I'm not sure how many of these are truly Greek--I found them all on a Greek name site. I like Acheron and Cyrano, personally.

Well i'm Greek so I'm sure I can help you! If you need to know how to pronounce something or what any of these means (in case Nameberry doesn't have it) just ask.
Chrysander -- I know you said no R ending, but I love this and want it to be used!
Demetri -- form of Demetrius which means love of the earth

To get technical on you, the reason most/all Greek male names end in "s" is because they are male nominative singulars- in English we got rid of most of our case endings back between Middle English and Modern English. So while a Greek name might technically be Vasillis, for example, everyone will call him Vasilli. Ditto many of the names that others have mentioned. So it really comes down to whether your friend wants a name derived from the Greek (Constantine, Dimitri, etc) or the actual Greek version (Constantinos, Dimitrios). HTH! By the way, my favorite Greek male names are Apollo (actual Greek Apollos), Adonis, Orion, Odysseus, Stratos, and Theron. A Greek friend, looking for a Greek name that he thought would work in the US, named his child Xenon.
