Here are some really great books about names of Greek origin, unfortunately one is in German and the rest are in Greek... but maybe you speak German or Greek, so then it wouldn't be a problem! :)

"Lexicon of the Ancient Mythological, Historical and Geographical Personal Names", N. Lorentes, Austria, 1837

"Homeric Onomatologion", ISBN 960-7812-35-2

"Thesaurus of Greek names", ISBN 96-7931-65-3

"Mega Onomastikon", ISBN 960-7756-02-9

"Mega Hetairikon", ISBN 960-7756-14-2

"From Gaia to Hypatia, the Greek women of the ancient world", ISBN 960-316-288-4

"New Lexicon of Greek Mythology", ISBN 960-7931-28-9

and of course click on the "Lexicon of Greek Personal Names" of the British Academy:

"Until the day that an ancient inscription will be found with the name "Alexandrovski" (or "Alexandrev" or "Alexandrov") written on it instead of "Alexander", true Macedonia and true Macedonians will remain Greek, as they always were."
