Meaning & History
Derived from the Croatian and Serbian noun ikona (which is written as икона in Serbian) meaning "icon", which is derived from Greek εικόνα (eikona), itself ultimately derived from ancient Greek εἰκών (eikon) meaning "likeness, image, portrait".This given name is religious in nature, since its use as a given name was inspired by the religious paintings (a.k.a. icons) of biblical characters and saints from the Eastern Orthodox Church. Also see IKON.
