Meaning of the baby name ATHANASIOS.

  

ATHANASIOS (Ἀθανασίος).  Greek name formed from the word θἁνατος (death), meaning "undying."

The Undying was in itself a name of good hope for a Christian, and it became dear to the Church at large through the great Alexandrian patriarch, the bulwark of the faith.  It is in the East that his name has been kept up; the West, though of course knowing it and using it for him individually, shows few namesakes except in Italy, where it is probably a remnant of the Greek influence upon Venice and Naples. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
