Other Origin(s):Italian
Meaning:Of the mountains
Oreste is an Italian form of the Greek boy’s name Orestes, meaning “of the mountains,” a fitting name for a little one from a mountainous region! In Greek mythology, Orestes was the son of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. He avenged his father’s murder by killing his mother and her lover Aegisthus, and was later driven mad. Despite Orestes' tragic tale, this name’s noble feel and ancient Greek roots make it an appealing choice for baby.
