Meaning:Earth mother
Demeter is a girl’s name that comes from the Greek words da and meter, meaning “earth mother.” Although delicate-sounding, its most celebrated namesake, the great goddess Demeter, makes it a mighty moniker in its own right. In Greek mythology, Demeter was the dutiful daughter of Cronus and Rhea. One of the oldest deities in the ancient Greek pantheon, she mainly presided over agriculture and was worshipped in the Bronze Age for the earth’s bounty. A protector over devotees in the afterlife, Demeter was also a divine being whose reign was never-ending. With a matching name, baby Demeter will be equally as adored, both when they’re little and when they grow into the amazing individual they’re destined to be.
