Meaning & History

Derived from Greek πολύευκτος (polyeuktos) meaning "much desired, much wished for", which was composed of Greek πολυς (polys) "much" and εὐκτός (euktos) "desired, wished for, prayed for". This was the name of a 3rd-century martyr from Melitene. It was also borne by a 10th-century patriarch of Constantinople.
