Biblical Greek Baby boy name Phero

Learn more about the name Phero meaning “bear”

The title Pharaoh has always been an intriguing one and it’s even been used, more often than we might think, as a name for babies in the US. (Although King and Princess reign on the name charts!)

The Greek word Phero has nothing to do with royalty (in spite of sounding similar), but may make a great ancient alternative if you are looking for a name that could also pass as a royal title.


Original Language + Form: Greek φέρω

Range of Meanings: To carry, bring, present

Concept: Phero’s biblical meaning also has a large number of figurative uses where it’s translated to “endure”, “bear”, or “sustain (uphold)” and imply that they are continual. For example, God did not only sustain the universe in the past, he will continue to do so.
