arcadius

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
ARKADíā > ARKáS / ARKáDIOS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ARKADíā ‎(Ἀρκαδίᾱ) ARKáS ‎(Ᾰ̓ρκᾰ́ς) ARKáDIOS (Αρκάδιος)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Arkás ‎(Ᾰ̓ρκᾰ́ς) and Arkádios (Αρκάδιος)”, which in turn derives from “Arkadíā ‎(Ἀρκαδίᾱ)”, meaning “coming from Arcadia, native of Arcadia”. Arcadia, also known as idyllic land, pleasant life land, far from reality, is one of the regional units. It is part of the administrative region of Peloponnese. It takes its name from the mythological character Arcas, son of Zeus and Callisto. Arcas became the new king of Arcadia and the country's greatest hunter. In Greek mythology, it was the home of the god Pan. In European Renaissance arts, Arcadia was celebrated as an unspoiled, harmonious wilderness. Arcadius of Mauretania (died 302) is venerated as a saint and martyr. Tradition states that he was a prominent citizen of Caesarea in Mauretania Caesariensis (present-day Cherchell), who hid away in the countryside to avoid being forced to worship the Roman gods. However, he was caught and arrested.
