Meaning:Lord of the Earth, Earth-shaker
If you are searching for a name that’s suitable for a baby, never mind a sea god, we have got you covered! Known in Greek mythology as the god of the sea, Poseidon actually means “lord of the Earth” or “Earth-shaker.” Despite this meaning, Poseidon is, in fact, the god of the sea, storms, and earthquakes. A creator of new islands and calm seas, he is a deity that’s been worshipped for centuries. If you want to encourage your little one to live a sea-faring life or you’re simply a Greek mythology fan, then, just like a trident in Poseidon’s hand, this moniker will fit baby to a tee.
