Cleander M

kléos anḗr / andrós > Kléandros

This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Kléandros (Κλέανδρος)”, composed of two elements: “kléos (κλέος)” (rumour, report, good report, fame, glory) plus “anḗr ‎(ἀνήρ) andrós ‎(ἀνδρός)” (man “adult male”, husband). In turn the name means “glory of man, the one who brings strength and virility”. Cleander was a tyrant who ruled the Sicilian city of Gela, which had been previously subject to an oligarchy. He founded the Pantarid dynasty, reigning for seven years, and was murdered 498 BC by a citizen of Gela named Sabyllus who wanted to see the introduction of democracy in the city.
