Meaning:Flower; Praiseworthy
Antony is a boy's name of Greek and Latin origin and has great ties to the Ancient Roman elite. Strongly linked to the gens Antonia family of which the famed Mark Antony arose, the name is taught to derive from the Greek word anthos, meaning "flower." It is also said to have Latin origins, translating to “praiseworthy.” Indeed, this very root earns Antony its alternative spelling of Anthony, which emerged in the 17th century. While its true meaning is often contested, Antony still holds the prestige of its Roman heritage, most notably its association with descendants of the mighty Hercules.
