Odysseus is a famous Greek name. Popularized by Homer in Odyssey and Iliad, Odysseus is a legendary king and hero. The story goes that when the boy’s grandfather was asked to give him a name, he decided on one that represented his true feelings about life. Angered by everyone and with everything, the grandfather chose Odysseus, which translates to “angry man.” But Odysseus grew up to be anything but. In fact, it was not his temper that he was remembered for but his intelligence, razor-sharp wit, and versatility. Should you choose to name your little one after Odysseus, it may inspire baby to rise above the emotions that hold them back from greatness.
