Greek Background

Officially called the Hellenic Republic, with its capital of Athens, Greece is one of the oldest places in the world. Historical sites as famous as Acropolis, Mount Olympus or Parthenon give the country its unique atmosphere of the genesis of civilization. Only the Greek would be able to invent something as outlasting as Olympic Games or tzatziky, and design architectural gems, scattered about the Peloponnese peninsula and the Greek islands of Crete, Rhodes, Corfu and others. The Greek language is a part of the Indo-European family despite the Greek alphabet which is undecipherable to most people outside the country itself. Parents all over the world use Greek origin to name their children in a way that is by no means archaic or obsolete, but linguistically permanent, of unwavering ancestry and colorful etymology.
