Delius is a masculine name of Greek origin, meaning "from Delos." Steeped in history, the small island of Delos is one of the most important mythological, historical, and archaeological sites in Greece. The ancient Greeks believed that Apollo and Artemis were born there, and Delos has undergone the most extensive excavations in the Mediterranean. The Delius name gained fame as a surname in the late 19th century thanks to English composer Frederick Delius. His work is still relevant and inspires young musicians worldwide thanks to the work of The Delius Society, formed in 1962. Your little one can take inspiration from such a revered artist and historical old land.
