Paraklētos (par-ak'-lay-tos), according to the Greek Strong’s Dictionary, is a singular masculine noun that means an intercessor, consoler. It can also mean advocate, comforter, or helper. An advocate, as used in this Name, is someone who appears in another’s behalf. An advocate’s role is to fight for someone, especially for a person’s rights. To put it into perspective, it is like a defense attorney. So, if you’re needing a defensive attorney, then that means there is a plaintiff or prosecutor.
