LANGUAGE FAMILY:
tyrrhenian
ORIGIN:
etruscan 
NAME ROOT:
ANTōNIUS
MEANING:
This name means “highly praiseworthy” and derives from the root “Antōnius”, a Gens (Roman family name) to which (Marcus Antonius) belonged. That name originally came from the Etruscan language. Its use as a Christian name was due to the veneration of: 1) Saint Anthony a Christian saint from Egypt and a prominent leader among the Desert Fathers who is venerated by Eastern Orthodox Church, Coptic Orthodox Church, Bulgarian Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic Church and the Coptic Catholic Church. 2) Anthony of Padua (Anthony of Lisbon), a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order. Though he died in Padua, he was born and raised in a wealthy family in Lisbon. Noted by his contemporaries for his forceful preaching and expert knowledge of scripture, he was the second-fastest canonized saint and was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church.
