Meaning:Of the sea
Pelagius is a boy’s name of Greek origin. Although it comes from the Greek word pelagos, meaning “of the sea,” it might have a little more to do with the saints than with the saltwater you see at the beach. The name Pelagius rose to fame from Romano-British theologian Pelagius, who endured heavy criticism for his unconventional teachings of Christianity. Nonetheless, he stood firm in what he believed. With any luck, your free-thinking Pelagius will also muster the courage to speak their mind.
