Latinized form of the given name Aβρόκoμας (Abrokomas) or (Habrokomas), which is either the hellenized form of an unknown Persian given name, or a genuine Greek given name. In case of the latter, the name is probably derived from Greek ἁβροκόμης (habrokomēs) meaning "with delicate hair" as well as "with luxuriant foliage". The word is ultimately derived from Greek ἁβρός (habros) "graceful, delicate, pretty" (or "refined") combined with Greek κόμη (komē) "hair (of the head)". A known bearer of this name was Abrocomas, a Persian satrap from the 4th century BC.
