Origin and Meaning

Transferred use of the Russian place name, a Ukrainian port on the Black Sea Одесса (Odessa) of unknown meaning. It was founded in 1795 by order of Catherine the Great at a time when Greek place-names were in vogue in this part of Russia. It was given a name based on that of Odessos, an ancient Greek colony said (on rather dubious grounds) to have been near here. The name has been popularly but erroneously linked with that of Odysseus [1]
