Meaning & History

Derived from Σεβαστός (Sebastos), which is an Ancient Greek calque of the Roman title Augustus. Also compare the Greek noun Σεβάστιος (Sebastios) meaning "an oath by the genius of the Emperor". Both are ultimately derived from the Greek adjective σεβαστός (sebastos) meaning "venerable, reverend, august".
