Meaning & History
The first element of this name is derived from Greek νέος (neos) meaning "young, youthful" as well as "new, fresh". The second element is derived from either the Greek noun φρόνις (phronis) meaning "prudence, wisdom" or the Greek verb φρονέω (phroneo) meaning "to think" as well as "to be minded". Both words are ultimately derived from the Greek noun φρήν (phren) meaning "midriff" as well as "mind, intellect, wits".A known bearer of this name was the ancient Greek dramatist Neophron of Sicyon, who likely lived in the second half of the 5th century BC.
