    Okay sure its a name with “history”. it´s got roots, way deep roots. But WHY would you want to name your child something that means “aggressive” or “warlike”.

    Gender: Masculine
    Usage: History
    Pronounced: TAHL-e-mee [key]

    From the Greek name ?????????? (Ptolemaios), derived from Greek ????????? (polemeios) meaning “aggressive” or “warlike”. Ptolemy was the name of several Greco-Egyptian rulers of Egypt, all descendents of Ptolemy I, one of Alexander the Great’s generals. This was also the name of a Greek astronomer.

    Honestly, never heard the name Ptolemy? Like “a person” said, Cleopatra’s family… Ancient Egyptian… I thought everyone knew that! Wow, this is rather sad that our society is so disconnected from classical history. So no, 2teens3beans, it’s not made up.

    Not a very smooth or easily flowing name. I dont know why stars feel like they have to name their children so far out and weird names. That poor poor child when he first learns to write his name. No sounding that name out!!

    Someone I used to know always said they would name their first son Ptolemy! This is the only other time i’ve ever heard of it! The ‘P’ is silent – it’s just pronounced Tolemy. x

    Ptolemy? I never heard that one before, must be ptotally made up. I wonder how it would be pronounced? I hope Ptolemy doesn’t get his little ptootie beat up on the playground.
