Eudoxia (Greek: Ευδοξία, Eudoxía), Eudokia (Ευδοκία, Eudokía, anglicized as Eudocia) or Evdokia is a feminine given name, which originally meant "good deeds" or "she whose deeds are good" in Greek. The Slavic forms of the name are East Slavic: Evdokiya (Russian: Евдокия), Yevdokiya (Ukrainian: Євдокія); South Slavic: Evdokija (Евдокија), Jevdokija (Јевдокија). It was mainly popular in late antiquity and during the Middle Ages, particularly in Eastern Europe. It continues in use today, usually in honor of various saints.[citation needed]
