Each girl and boy has their own greek name given to them during the initiation ceremony by the executive members of the house. Having a Greek name means you are associated in the Greek community and you have an identity other than yourself that you are representing in the house this tradition has been passed down since the very beginning of Greek community and it is a way to separate the Greek community from those who are not involved. It is representational of how a member is now immersed into the Greek community as they are now seen as Greek themselves. I enjoy having a Greek name as it gives you a special place in the house. Each name can be translated to English and they usually mean “beautiful”, “knowledgable”, or something along those sorts.
