Greek, diminutive of Athanasios

Thanos Origin and Meaning

The name Thanos is a boy's name of Greek origin meaning "immortal".

Thanos originated as a short form of Athanasios, a Greek name meaning "immortal." It is composed of the elements a, a negative Greek prefix, and thanatos, meaning "death." St. Athanasius, who used the Latin spelling of the name, was a bishop of Alexandria and known for his opposition to Arianism.

Though this is a perfectly respectable Greek choice, be aware that Thanos the Mad Titan is a sinister Marvel Comics villain.
