Agnes is a feminine name of Greek origin which is said to come from a Greek word for ‘Purity’. It is also thought to perhaps originate from the Latin agnus which means ‘Lamb’, and the Christian Saint Agnes has the symbol of a lamb. It may have increased in popularity in Britain recently as model Agyness Deyn as risen to fame.
