Meaning of the baby name ALEXANDROS.

  

ALEXANDROS.  Macedonian Greek name meaning "defender of man."  [Gr. Ἀλέξανδρος, composed of alexo, "to ward," or "keep off," "to defend," and aner, genitive andros, "a man"]. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

... Not only did the great conqueror possess many namesakes,—as indeed, there is a story that all the children born the year of his conquest of India were called after him,—but Alexandros was already frequent in Greece; and among the kingdoms formed out of the fragments of his empire, it recurred so as to become usual all over the Græcized East.  Even the Maccabean Jews used it, and it was common in Judea, as well as elsewhere, in the time of the Gospels, so that a large proportion of saints and martyrs bore it and handed it on, especially in Greece and Italy... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
