Name Root:
ágō / ágein lāós > Agēsílāos
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Agēsílāos ‎(Ἀγησίλᾱος),” composed of two elements: “ágō ‎(ἄγω) ágein ‎(ἄγειν)” (to lead, fetch, bring along, to guide, to draw out) plus “lāós (λᾱός)” (people, people assembled). In turn, the name means “leader of the people, the one who guides.” Agesilaus I, son of Doryssus, was the sixth king of the Agiad line at Sparta, excluding Aristodemus. According to Apollodorus of Athens, reigned forty-four years, and died in 886 BC. Pausanias makes his kingdom a short one, but contemporary with the legislation of Lycurgus. His son Archelaus succeeded him. His grandson was Teleclus.
