Antaeus is a boy’s name of Greek origin and means “opponent” or “opposite.” In Greek mythos, Antaeus was a giant and the son of Poseidon and Gaea, the deities that reigned over the sea and the earth. He was an invincible opponent so long as his feet touched the ground, and so the story goes that Hercules threw him into the air to defeat him. This age-old name is exceptionally fitting for parents with a passion for Greek mythology and can inspire baby to always keep their feet firmly planted on the ground.
