Prophet Name Meaning
Scottish, English, French, and German: nickname from Middle English and Old French prophete, Middle High German prophet ‘prophet’, ‘seer’, ultimately from Greek prophetes ‘predictor’, from pro ‘before’ + a derivative of phemi ‘to speak’. As an American family name, this name has absorbed some cases of Greek Profitis and Profitidis.
