Name Root:
(á) kakḗ / kakós > Akákios
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Akákios (Ακάκιος),” composed of two elements: “á (ἄ)” (alpha privative) plus “kakḗ (κακή) kakós (κᾰκός)” (bad, worthless, useless, ugly, hideous). In turn, the name means “innocent, not evil.” Acacius was a Cappadocian Greek centurion of the imperial army. He was arrested for his faith on charges of being a Christian, tortured, and then moved to Byzantium (Constantinople), where he was scourged and beheaded. He has later proclaimed a martyr for not wanting to renounce his Christian faith. The feast day marks April 17 (Orthodox Church) and May 8 (Catholic Church), in honor of St. Acacius of Byzantium, soldier and martyr. Saint Acacius of Amida († 425) was archbishop of Amida in Mesopotamia (modern-day Turkey) from 400 to 425, during the reign of Theodosius II. He is worshiped as a saint by the Catholic Church.
