Meaning:Handsome, desirable; Lord, master, ruler
Adonis is a baby boy name of Greek origin. Fans of Greek mythology will recognize the tale about the mortal man who fell head-over-heels for Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Though Adonis found himself smitten, he was also admired and envied by many for his ravishing features and excellent hunting skills. Today, this name directly translates to "lord," "master," or "ruler," with the associations “desirable” and “handsome.” A perfect description for baby Adonis, indeed.
