symmachus M

greek
SúN MáKHOMAI > SýMMACHOS

This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Sýmmachos (Σύμμαχος)”, composed of two elements: “sún (σῠ́ν)” (beside, with, allied) plus “mákhomai (μάχομαι)” (war, fight, battle, quarrel, wrangle, dispute). In turn the name means “allied fighter”. Saint Symmachus born in Sardinia, was pope from 498 to 514. His tenure was marked by a serious schism over who was legitimately elected pope by the citizens of Rome. Symmachus was baptized in Rome, where he became archdeacon of the Church under Pope Anastasius II.
