ευ

The familiar adverb ευ (eu) means good or noble. It occurs mostly in compounds.

οδος

The noun οδος (hodos) is the common Greek word for road, street or way, and, as the word "way" in English, can also be used to describe a method, solution or modus operandi. The Romans tied their empire together with their famous highways (whose primary function was to accommodate the movement of the military; ordinary folks were discouraged from travelling by all sorts of taxes), and when Jesus said "I am the Way," he didn't just volunteer a new way of doing or thinking but rather the one and only way for the whole of humanity to be tied together in a way that no one will oppose.

🔼Euodia meaning

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!
