Hi there,

I wonder if someone can help me?

When my father and mother were first married, my father was stationed in Cyprus. My first family home was on a street (named in greek?) called (something which sounds like) 'eeraklooee' street. I would love to find out what this word might mean, and how to write it in greek and english, as a memorial to my parents here in Scotland.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi to you too.

You probably mean "Ηρακλείου" "Irakleiou"? I hope I helped.

Have a nice day!

It could be either "Ηρακλείου" (the genitive of Heraklion, the capital city of Crete or the genitive of Heraclius, the Byzantine emperor) or "Hρακλέους" (the genitive of Ηercules). I suppose you know better.:-)

Thank you soooooo much!!!

Mum and Dad left me a wee house in Scotland, and I'm intending to name the house this, in memory of them.

They would be so pleased!

Many thanks
