Hellenic name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random Hellenic names and surnames.

The Hellenistic period spanned from 323 BC to 31 BC, but Hellenistic civilization existed from about 1200 BC until 600 CE. During the Hellenistic period Greece's influence on the world was at its strongest, not just in terms of power, but also in terms of art and culture. During this time a lot of progress was made in literature, theatre, music, mathematics, architecture, philosophy, and science, as well as a change in Greek religion (new gods emerged), and progress was made in exploration.

Hellenic names are simple. They used a personal name, and if there was any confusion they would use a patronymic (son of father), a place name (person of city), or an epithet-esque name (name, savior), but this wasn't very often.
Since Hellenic culture was adopted throughout various parts of the world the names spread as well, and were used in the Mideast, by Hellenized Jews for example.
