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

  

DARDANOS (Δάρδανος).  Greek name meaning "a Trojan." (A Copious and Critical English-Latin Lexicon, Riddle-Kerchever, 1856).  The Latin form is Dardanus.  The name is of Phoenician or Karian origin, strongly connected with Darius, Dorus, and the Dorians.  It is used in a plural sense to denote Trojan women.

Dardanos, a son of Zeus, lived in the island of Samothrace with his brother Iasion, who was struck dead by a thunderbolt for a shameful crime, while Dardanos, in grief, left his home and established a new one on the Asiatic mainland near the mouth of the Hellespont.  Finding favour with Teukros, the king of the land, he was given a tract in which he built a city called after himself, and later he inherited the sovereignty and changed the name of the entire country to Dardania. (The Mythology of All Races, Moore, 1916)
