Philemon is a masculine name. It means "affectionate" in Greek. The correct way to pronounce this name is fi-LEE-mun. Philemon is also a book of the Bible. The New Testament shows Philemon as one of the recipients of Paul's epistles, when the latter was a prisoner in Rome.

Philemon has a singular pleasant sounding variant: Filomeno. Philemon is a rare male first name and a rare surname too. Philemon (c. 362 BC – c. 262 BC) was an Athenian playwright and poet of the New Comedy. He was born in Sicily but migrated to Athens before 330 BC, after which he was known to have produced plays. People with the name Philemon are known to be wise and trustworthy.
