Meaning & History

From the Latin name Epiphanius, which was from the Greek name Επιφανιος (Epiphanios), itself derived from the Greek word επιφανεια (epiphaneia) meaning "appearance, manifestation". This name was borne by a few early saints. It is associated with the event known in English as the Epiphany (Spanish Epifanía, Italian Epifania, Latin Epiphania), the coming of the three Magi to visit the infant Jesus.
