Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name "Peter" is derived from the Greek Πετρος (Petros) meaning "stone". This is a translation used in most versions of the New Testament of the name Cephas, meaning "stone" in Aramaic, which was given to the apostle Simon by Jesus'. Simon Peter was the most prominent of the apostles during Jesus's ministry and is often considered the first pope.
