Constantine Family History

Constantine Name Meaning

English: from a medieval personal name, Latin Constantinus, a derivative of Constans (see Constant). The name was popular in Continental Europe, and to a lesser extent in England, as having been borne by the first Christian ruler of the Roman Empire, Constantine the Great (?280–337), in whose honor Byzantium was renamed Constantinople. In some cases the name may be an Americanized form of one of the many cognates in other languages, in particular Greek Konstantinos. English (of Norman origin): habitational name or regional name for someone from Cotentin (Coutances) in Manche, France (see Constance 2).
