Greek Names

If you've visited SMD3 or WWD you must be asking yourself, "What's this obbsession with Greek Names?" Well, besides the fact that I love the sounds of Greek words, my granddad is Greek and my mother can read Greek (she has an English-Greek dictionary). Below are some people names and the names of Greek Gods and Immortals. Obviously this page is copyright.

Words Translated into Greek

Ah yes, you want some Greek words. If there is a word you want to know and it isn't on here just e-mail me asking for the translation. The names are off the names list (the ones that are real words) and are traslated into Greek (Roman spelling). If there are more than one word then it means that there is a different defination. For example: Moon=fegkari, selini, chazevo

fegkari=luna or moon
selini= just moon
chazevo= a bum, loiter (that's why it's not there)

Don't worry, I didn't post any words that had a way-off meaning.

Here's a neat little thing my mom and I found out. The font "Symbol" on Microsoft Works is Greek. Cool huh?

So I were to set the font to "Symbol" on here:
Hello! My name is Alix.
I just wrote: Hello! My name is Alix.

I left out some two-worded names because it would just be repeating.
So if you want "Silver Season", you take silver (asimi, asimenios, asimono; they all mean the same thing) and season (epochi, exoikeiono, exoikeionomai, orimazo; they, too, all mean the same thing). I'll use asimono for silver since it just means "silver" and exoikeiono for season since it just means "season". Put them together and you get the name Asimono Exoikeiono.

Wild Spirit=Agrios Fronima

Cosmic Dance=Kosmikos Chorevo

Summer Song=Kalokairi Tragoudi

Wolf=lykos (lupus) or gynaikokataktitis

And so on...

Good luck on finding that perfect name for your pet!
