Stephen was a favorite name in ancient Greece, as well as a deacon who was stoned to death for promoting the teachings of Christianity, an act that made him the first Christian martyr. It was also frequently the name of kings and popes. Several modern-day bearers of the name include talk show host Stephen Colbert, author Stephen King and the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry (who pronounces it STEF-fen.)
