My last name is Achille, my father and his family are from Haiti. It is nice to learn more about the meaning of my last name. I'm trying to learn more about my heritage and family history. This has helped.

The possible meaning for Achille (both Italian and French) is "He who embodies the grief of the people". This has neither been confirmed nor has it been denied, as far as I have found.

"Achille". An interesting name, if I may say so. It has survived many films, many song mentions, and, of course: age. Within the past few years the name of "Roman" has gained strength in popularity. Of which I believe "Achille" and/or "Achilles" will travel in an upward.

It definitely is very masculine. If between the name "Achille" and main name of "Perry" (excluding nicknames). I do believe the winner is quite obvious, wouldn't you agree?

Regardless, you would need to make the decision upon the fact that it would be a name that may be targeted in the school ages.

It kind of sounds like Achilles' heel as one word, but other than that I love this name!

Correction, actually, to a poster above. If you wish to pronounce it correctly in the Italian tongue, it would be:


"A" as in "Father". Stress on the "KEE" (chi). Pronounce both "LL"s, most easily accomplished by stressing the "I" (ee) right before and during. Lightly pronounce the "E" at the end, as a soft "lay".
