Meaning & History

Andronymic meaning "wife of Georgios". This was used in early modern Greece, at which time a married woman's surname was formed from her husband's given name and the suffix -αινα (-aina). This custom has been discontinued; in present-day Greece, a woman's surname does not change upon marriage.
