You know what? Name your kid this if you want. Haters gonna hate, but don't give them the satisfaction of stomping your name-related dreams to the ground. Gerasimos may be a mouthful, but personally, I think it's neat. It has a kind of "wise old bearded guy OF POWER" feel to it, as if the presence of a Gerasimos should be accompanied by all manner of ominous chanting. This may hamper your future child's use of the library, however.
My name is GERASIMOS (Î“Î•Î¡Î‘Î£Î™ÎœÎŸÎ£), I am a Greek national and of Greek ethnicity. Please consider the following information, provided by me in an effort to contribute to your site.
This name comprises of the Greek word Î“Î•Î¡Î‘Î£ (meaning material prize) and the suffix IMOS (Î™ÎœÎŸÎ£), denoting deserved of, or possible to. The Greek word for "old" or "old age" is Î“Î—Î¡Î‘Î£, not Î“Î•Î¡Î‘Î£.
For example, quoting Socrates, Î“Î—Î¡Î‘Î£ÎšÎ© Î‘Î•Î™ Î”Î™Î”Î‘Î£ÎšÎŸÎœÎ•Î?ÎŸÎ£
meaning "I (proceed to old) age being always (continuously) tought (acquiring knowledge).
Hence, in my view, the name GERASIMOS refers to a person who is worthy of a (material) prize, or a person to him a material prize can be awarded. Thank you for accommodating my viewpoint.
In Greek it is pronounced Yerassimos (e for Echo).
