Gender:  Male
Origin:  Greek
Alternate Spelling(s):  non
Meaning:  "the enlightened one" - see below info
Additional Information:  This is one of the few names in Greek that are associated with a concept. Its root, fot, is the same as that of fos (light), the "o" in both is an omega as opposed to an omikron, literally "big o" and "small o". The root of a a Greek word is not evident in its nominative case so one has to go to its genitive case to determine it, hence the non perfect similarity between fot and fos for the "non knowers". People carrying this name celebrate their name day on Epifany, a day the world was enlightened according to Christian tradition, hence the name day of Fotios is on January 6. It is a name which did not exist in pre - Christian Greece. You now see the relationship between Fotios and light. Yet, do not assume that men with this name are arrogant ans self centered!

Submitted from:  Athens, Greece
Pronunciation:  fOtios. It is closer to Fautios than Fotios the site pronounces it. The first "o" is an omega with an imperceptibly longer and open "o" sound whereas the second is a rather short and closed "o" sound corresponding to a shorter "aw" in law and in the "o" in clot respectively. Also, the "t" is not as strong or stressed as in the site's pronunciation - probably the result of your short dwelling on the first "o" - and the accent is clearly on the first "o". Your pronunciation reminds me a little the way foreigners tend to pronounce it, i.e., as if they tried to accentuate all three vowels. Too bad there was no option on the site to pronounce it for you.
