Rodion is a baby's name that's destined for the history books.

Its Greek roots can be traced back to the name Hērodion, which is made up of the elements hḗrōs, meaning "hero," and aoidḗ, which means "ode," "legend," or "song," infusing the name with some poetic elegance. With so much power behind him, baby Rodion will feel empowered to tackle whatever the world might throw at him.
