Ceres is a girl’s name of Latin origin. In Roman mythology, Ceres was the goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility, and motherly relationships. Her name came from the Proto-Italic word kerēs, meaning “with grain,” which ultimately derives from the Proto-Indo-European root ḱerh, meaning “to feed.” She was celebrated during the seven-day festival of Cerealia, which took place in April.
