Daemon is a masculine name of Greek origin. Coming from the word daimon, It translates to “god,” or “protective spirit.” While it may look like it has negative connotations—similar to “demon,”—it actually has a broader meaning for baby to enjoy. In Greek mythology, daemons were seen as both guiding spirits or as a personification of the human soul. If you’re a Philip Pullman fan, this name can also connect your little one to the iconic creatures in the His Dark Materials trilogy.
