greek
óRNUMI / óROS HíSTēMI > ORéSTēS

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Oréstēs (Ὀρέστης)”, composed of two elements: “órnumi (ὄρνυμι) óros (ὄρος)” (a mountain, hill, to set upon, to raise) plus “hístēmi (ἵστημῐ)” (to make to stand, to stand, set). In turn the name means “of the mountains, one who lives in the mountains”. Orestes was the son of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon. He is the subject of several Ancient Greek plays and of various myths connected with his madness and purification, which retain obscure threads of much older ones.
