Deakin is an English surname derived from the Greek word diákonos, meaning “messenger” and “servant.” Once borne by deacons of the Christian church, Deakin has evolved into a personal name with a reverent air ideal for an old soul. As a Christian messenger or servant of God, it is a deacon’s duty to uphold the values of their community with love, compassion, and dignity. If you can see such noble virtues in your new arrival and wish to nurture them, Deakin is a good place to start.
