The first element of this name is derived from the Greek noun σταυρός (stauros), which originally meant "upright pale, upright stake" but nowadays has the meaning of "cross". Also see Stavros. The second element is derived from the Greek noun ἀκίς (akis) meaning "pointed object" (such as an arrow, barb or dart). Staurakios was the name of a Byzantine Emperor from the 9th century AD.
