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

  

NARKISSOS (Νάρκισσος).  Greek myth name of a vain youth who fell in love with his own reflection and eventually was turned into a "daffodil."  The name actually comes from the Persian word narkis, meaning "narcotic."  See Narkis.  Also see Narcissus, Narcisso, Nargiz, and Narkiss.

... In my opinion, Greek νάρκισσος is derived from an Iranian language through the medium of an idiom of Asia Minor, not vice versâ, as believed by Noeldeke (Persische Studien, II, p. 43). (Sino-Iranica, Laufer, 1919)
