Hermes is a boy’s name of Greek origin, meaning “messenger.” If you’ve got a good grip on your Greek mythology, you’ll know that Hermes was believed to be a mediator between the mortal world and the mighty gods of Mount Olympus. Hermes was a professional prankster, too, and was said to steal cattle from Apollo—who would later become his closest companion—just minutes after his birth. Both a whiz and a wisecrack, Hermes and the name he bears are bound to be a bold inspiration for baby.
