This generator will produce 15 random Greek names and surnames. Greece is a Southern European country with around 11 million inhabitants. It has an unbelievably rich history and is considered to be the birthplace of democracy, Western plays, literary and intellectual studies, the Olympic Games, various scientific concepts and much more. As far as names go, Greek names usually follow the trend that most western countries follow. Some names are similar to names that you would usually find in many countries in the West, but there are also several variations. Greek surnames have suffixes, often giving away a person 's geographical origins. For example, the surnames ending in -akis show a person (or his ancestor at least) is from Crete.

There's no other nation, other than Greece and Cyprus, with as many Greek place names as the USA. Given that, historically, most cities and towns were first founded in relatively recent years, the first founders were often able to pick a name for their town/city of choice; sometimes, however, this choice may be selected by the government (i.e. the town's governor) (e.g. Athens, Sparta, etc.). And while, sometimes, such a selection is made because it suits the government, at other times, it's simply the most popular among a community of people, since Greeks are always known to love naming things after themselves.
This has been the case in the past, and it's expected to continue to be true in the future. Some of the most common Greek place names, therefore, tend to be chosen based on personal preference. The Greek language was primarily written down around the sixth century B.C., and this means that there are plenty of locations named after early Greeks. In addition to the names of places, towns and cities (both ancient and modern), there are also a large number of Greek words that are used in everyday speech, and it's those words that are used in most American-Greece associations. In the United States, for example, there is a place called the "Downtown Athens," an area in Cleveland (called the "Greektown") and many other areas that are named after Greeks throughout the US.
While Greek is not a very difficult language to learn, some Greek words can be difficult to pronounce and understand, and it's these kinds of problems that make many people think that naming a location after a Greek person is anachronistic or even inappropriate. For the most part, though, ancient Greek names are far more appropriate for this country than they are for Greece itself.
