Meaning:Follower of Dionysus
The Greek gender-neutral name Dion means “follower of Dionysus.” Dionysus, also known as Bacchus, was the ancient Greek god of wine, fertility, merriment, and theatre. He possessed great power and could transform himself into either a bull or a lion. Dionysus was also the only god who had a parent that was mortal.
