Meaning:Stubborn, resistant, holding fast
If baby is feisty from day one, why not match their take-charge energy with the masculine name Antioch? This Greek moniker combines the elements antí, or "against," with ékhō, meaning "have," "possess," or "have charge of." Put them together, and you've got "stubborn," "resistant," and "holding fast." Antioch is shared with the capital city of ancient Syria, several early saints, and a Greek king of the Seleucid Empire. Baby Antioch will tackle obstacles with tenacity and never back down. This name reminds us that sometimes, being a little stubborn is exactly what it takes to triumph in life!
