Meaning:The one who reaches the sky
Grecophiles who love any reference to Greek mythology may find themselves enamored with Ikaros. Ikaros is a boy’s name of Ancient Greek origin and a variation of Icarus. This lyrical title means “the one who reaches the sky.” In Greek lore, Icarus is the son of the master craftsman, Daedalus. To escape Crete, Daedalus crafted wings from feathers and wax to fly away. Tragically, Icarus flew too close to the sun, melting the wax and leading to his demise. The moral of this tale is that balance and moderation will reward a long and fulfilling life—a noble code to live by. Baby Ikaros will undoubtedly reach for the stars, so knowing which risks to take in life will help them safely achieve their dreams.
