The first element of this name is derived from the name of the Greek goddess Athena. The second element is either derived from Greek αγορευω (agoreuo) "to orate, to speak publicly" or from Greek ἀγορά (agora), which can mean "assembly" as well as "market". This name was borne by several ancient Greeks, such as statesman Athenagoras of Syracuse (5th century BC) and general Athenagoras of Macedon (2nd century BC).
