Ancient Greek male name which was originally either given in reference to the city of Histiaia (better known by its latinized form Histiaea) or in reference to the nymph Histiaia from Greek mythology (also better known by its latinized form, which is Histiaea also). Ultimately, for the etymological meaning of the name, it doesn't matter: the city was named in honour of the nymph, so both the city and the nymph's names have the same etymological meaning. For more about this, please see Histiaia and Histiaea.
