Meaning and etymology of the name Euodia




Euodia Euodia


The name Euodia occurs once in the Bible. Paul urges her and Syntyche to live in harmony in the Lord (Philippians 4:2).

The name Euodia consists of two parts. The first part is the familiar word eu (eu), meaning good, brave or noble. It survives in modern words such as euphoria and euphemism, and is also a part of the names Euphrates and Eunice.

The second part of the name Euodia comes from the Greek word hodos, meaning road or way. This noun is the common word for road or street, but it's also used in the sense of travel: being underway or the "way" of a Sabbath, meaning a Sabbath's journey (Acts 1:12). The noun hodos is also used in the sense of manner or mode: way of thinking or the means by which one gets somewhere. Jesus applies the word hodos to Himself when He calls Himself the Way (John 14:6).

Some related words are the verb hodeuo (hodeuo), meaning to be on the way, to travel (Luke 10:33) and the noun hodegos (hodegos), meaning leader (Acts 1:16).

The name Euodia literally means Good Road, and is identical to a standard wish that one would say to a departing traveler, meaning (Have A) Good Trip!, or even in general to anyone one wants to wish Success!, or Good Luck!
