Meaning:River of sorrow
Acheron is a boy's name of Greek origin, meaning "river of sorrow." The name is inspired by the Greek river of the same name, which flows through Thesprotía in Epirus. In ancient times, the river was believed to lead to the underworld, while Greek mythology buffs might recall Acheron as a waterway to Hades. Today, the river rejects its woeful reputation as it continually entices adventurers from around the world. The 32-mile-long river bursts with a biodiverse ecosystem of gorges, waterfalls, and ponds and is sure to be any nature lover's dream. Teeming with a storied past, Acheron is an exciting choice for baby, who’ll always venture through life's obstacles regardless of what follows behind.
