Greek baby names include choices from ancient mythology along with modern Greek names both familiar to English speakers and those used mainly in Greece. As mythological and classic names become more popular, Greek names are found more often in nurseries and on playgrounds around the world. The girls’ name Sophia, at the top of many popularity lists, is Greek, as is Alexander, Catherine, and Andrew.
In fact, many Greek baby names have traveled far and wide from their origins in Greece. But there are other Greek names that are attracting new interest that are more distinctly Greek: Cassia and Ione for girls, for instance, and Homer and Linus for boys. If you’re interested in Greek names for your baby, here is our full range.
