A little information about ancient greek names - Previously in ancient Greece, a person had no last name and was identified with only his first name. But after some decades, use of the geographical place in the name became compulsory. For example, Markos in the Aegean Islands. This rule was specially made for maintaining official records. It has been an age-old tradition among Greeks to name a newborn after his/her grandparents. Many of the ancient Greek names have originated from Greek gods and goddesses and Roman gods. Some names have originated from the Old and New Testament and Christian traditions. Greek names also include names of famous philosophers and heroes.
