Greek last Names - Page 1

The history of Greek last names is a long and varied one. Last names were not always used in Greece, but when they were introduced, they were often derived from nicknames or personal characteristics.

For instance, the last name ‘Papadopoulos’ means ‘son of the priest’, while ‘Xenakis’ indicates someone who is hospitable.

Over time, as more and more Greeks moved abroad, many last names underwent changes to make them sound more ‘foreign’.

For example, the name ‘Contos’ became ‘Counts’, while ‘Tsouderos’ was changed to ‘Suderland’. Today, there are thousands of different Greek last names in use all over the world. Have a look at them below:
