Meaning:messenger; helper
Deacon is a gender-neutral name, humble in its meaning though it offers so much. Emerging from the Greek diakonos, Deacon means "messenger" or "helper." So often associated with Christian clergy, Deacon is no simple servant but a walking embodiment of absolute love and selflessness. It is the Apostle Paul who first describes Deacon's most desirable qualities, outlining that they must be compassionate, dignified without deviousness, and most of all, demonstrative that love is tangible. One of the most enduring examples of a deacon nominated by Paul is the notable female figure Phoebe—the only woman to receive the accolade within the bible. A name reserved for the most loyal and honorable, Deacon is a profoundly empowering name to bestow upon baby.
