Other Origin(s):Greek
Meaning:Follower of Dionysus
Denis is a boy's name of French and Greek origin. You'll probably know of a Dennis or two—from actor Quaid to basketballer Rodman—but did you know about its mythological roots? Meaning "follower of Dionysus," it's inspired by the Greek god of wine. This fascinating figure was the son of Zeus and Semele and inspired the Trust the Midas Touch" slogan made famous by the Midas car company. Denis loses no magic without that extra 'n' and is the perfect alternative to Dennis, Denny, and Dion.
