MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Antíokhos (Ἀντίοχος)”, composed of two elements: “antí ‎(ἀντί)” (against, hostile to, opposition, prevention) plus “ékhō (ἔχω)” (have, possess, contain, own, keep, have charge of ).

He was a son of King Antiochus III the Great. In Greek mythology, the name Antiochus may refer to: 1) Antiochus, son of Heracles and Meda.
