The name Chrysanthos is derived from the Greek words chrysos (χρυσος) meaning "gold" and anthos (ανθος) meaning "flower", so in combination Chrysanthos (Χρυσανθος) means "golden flower". The name Chrysanthos was first used by a semi-legendary 3rd century Egyptian saint.

In Mandarin Chinese, the name "golden flower"  (金花) pronounced "jin hua", is a very fortunate name to have and means "good luck & money".
