Meaning:Hunter; Godly
A brave little warrior deserves a mighty name to match, and you won't find one more worthy than Theon. This boy's name is of Greek origin and comes from Theron and the word theos. It translates to "hunter" and "godly." The most famous person to bear the name is Theon of Alexandria, a Greek mathematician, and observer of solar and lunar eclipses. His daughter, Hypatia, followed in his footsteps, becoming the first woman to gain recognition in the field. Perhaps this name's connection to hunting has more to do with pursuing answers to great questions. Nowadays, Theon is popular among Game of Thrones fans, honoring Theon Greyjoy. He's a rather complicated character, but resilient and even heroic nevertheless. If you're looking for a more subtle option, Theo is equally intriguing.
