Name Root:
epí aphrós > Aphrodī́tē > Epaphrás
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Epaphrás (Ἐπαφρᾶς),” composed of two elements: “epí (ἐπῐ́)” (on, up) plus “aphrós (ἀφρός) Aphrodī́tē (Ἀφροδῑ́τη)” (foam, of the sea). In turn, the name means “foamy, covered with foam (figurative: lovely).” Epaphras was a Christian preacher who spread the Gospel to his fellow Colossian citizens. When Paul was a prisoner in Rome, Epaphras came to him with a favorable account of the Church at Colossae. He is revered as a saint by the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. The feast day is traditionally celebrated on July 19.
