Other Origin(s):French, Greek
For the modern baby who needs a timeless name, Deon is one to keep on your radar. Deon is a gender-neutral name and an American respelling of the French Dion, from Dionysus, a Greek title borne by an ancient god. Dionysus is the mythological deity of wine and merriment and Zeus' son, whose name denotes him as the "Zeus of Nysa," where he was raised. As Deon—or Dion—is only the first element of this lofty name, Deon means "of Zeus," giving baby a super cool demigod-esque appeal. A name as versatile as it is charming and lyrical, Deon will help prepare baby to take on the world.
