Origin of the name BASILEIOS. Etymology of the name BASILEIOS. Meaning of the baby name BASILEIOS.


BASILEIOS (Βασιλειος).  Greek name meaning "kingly."  Also spelled Basileus and Basilios.  The Latin spelling is Basilius.

     That royal-looking serpent who was supposed to wear a crown on his head, and to kill with a look, was the basilisk; and the familiar basilicon ointment was so termed as being fit for a king.
     Basileios (kingly) was not infrequent among the early Christians, and gained popularity through that great father of the Church, the Bishop of Neo-Cæsarea, as well as other more obscure saints.  It is extremely common in the Eastern Church, and especially in Russia, where the first letter suffers the usual change into V. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
