How do Greeks get their names and choose the names for their children? And why are so many names repeated in Greek culture? Thanks
Wow thank you! Are these traditions slowly changing? Or is the newer generation keeping them?First born son is named after father's father, and second born son after mother's father, and same with daughters. First is named after father's mother, etc. Sometimes names are chosen from antiquity, such as Aristotle or Athena, and some Greek names become Americanized, such as Dimitri being James or Jim.
