Stavros (Σταύρος) is a Greek name. It comes from σταυρóς, the Greek word for "cross", meaning the Christian cross. Unlike many other names of Greek origin (e.g. Alexander, Nicholas, Peter, Stephen) that have been adopted in many languages throughout the world, Stavros as a given name is used exclusively by Greeks. Shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, one of the 20th century's wealthiest men, was the most famous bearer of the name internationally.

Stavros is also a common name for Greek characters in books and films e.g. Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
