Name Root:
kalós gérōn > kalógeros
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “kalógeros ‎(καλόγερος),” meaning “monk, friar, a solitary, ascetic, monkish person.” The name is composed of two elements: “kalós ‎(καλός)” (beautiful, lovely, virtuous, noble) plus “gérōn ‎(γέρων)” (an old man). In turn, the name means “beautiful ancient.” Historically, within the Greek-Orthodox, this term was used as a title for monks and hermits, according to use which, in essence, is still preserved in modern Greek: “Καλόγερος.” 1) Saint Calocerus was a 2nd-century Christian martyr. He was probably a Roman army officer under the Roman emperor Hadrian and was a resident in Brescia, Lombardy, Italy. 2) San Calogero is a municipality in the Province of Vibo Valentia in the Italian region Calabria, located about 60 km southwest of Catanzaro and about 13 km southwest of Vibo Valentia. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on April 18 (Roman Catholic Church), May 19 (Eastern Orthodox).
