Meaning:God is gracious
Common to Greece and Cyprus, Yannakis is a handsome masculine name meaning “God is gracious.” While it takes on from Yannis, it’s actually one of the many variants of John. By virtue of which, this moniker carries the weight of history as it’s a name associated with several changemakers. It’s all the more loved thanks to Panayiotis Yannakis, a former Greek professional basketball player, considered to be one of the greatest of all time. So if you’d like baby to make a name for themselves, be it on the court, on stage, or anywhere else, this moniker, with its unshakeable belief in a higher power, will pave the way to greatness.
