Meaning:Rustic woodland spirit or demigod; Half human, half goat
Fawnus is a boy’s name inspired by Faunus, whose roots lie in the Latin word faun. Fawnus may awaken baby’s wild side with the meanings “rustic woodland spirit or demigod” and “half human, half goat,” referring to famous mythological creatures from countless tales. Faunus is an Ancient Italian deity likened to the Greek god Pan, worshipped in rural areas for his fertility and as a bringer of bountiful harvests. It was believed that his voice made the sounds of the forest and that he was half man, half goat—a faun, like the Greek satyr. Fawnus, rustic and whimsical, suits the little cub tuned in to the forest’s magic.
