Meaning of the baby name GREGORIOS.

  

GREGORIOS (Γρηγὁριος).  Greek name derived meaning "watchman," from γρηγορέω, a late and corrupt form of the verb ἐγρείρω (to wake or watch).

... A watchman was a highly appropriate term for a shepherd of the Church, and accordingly Gregorios was frequent among the early bishops of the Church.  Gregorios of Nyssa, the friend of St. Basil, Gregorios Thaumaturgos, or the wonder-worker, and others of the same high fame contributed to render it highly popular in the East, and in the West it was borne by that greatest and best of papal watchmen to whom the English Church looks back as the original awakener of her faith... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
