NATIVE NAME ROOT:
HAGNóS ‎(ἁγνός) AGNí ‎(αγνή)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “hagnós ‎(ἁγνός) agní ‎(αγνή)”, meaning “pure, chaste, holy, sacred, purifying”. It was the name of a popular Christian saint, Saint Agnes of Rome, a fact which encouraged the wide use of the name. Agnes was the third most popular name for women in the English speaking world for more than 400 years. Its medieval pronunciation was "Annis" and its usage and many of its forms coincided with the equally popular English name Anne. 1) Agnes of Rome (~291–304) is a virgin–martyr, venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodox Church, the Anglican Communion, and Lutheranism. She is one of seven women, who along with the Blessed Virgin, are commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass. She is the patron saint of chastity, gardeners, girls, engaged couples, rape victims, and virgins. 2) Agnes of Germany (1072–1143), also known as Agnes of Waiblingen, was a member of the Salian imperial family. Through her first marriage, she was a Duchess consort of Swabia; through her second marriage, she was a Margravine consort of Austria.
