Our name, Prohyptikon, is derived from the Greek root hupos (meaning "secret"), the full name best being translated as "Of the supreme mysteries."

The Prohyptikon Logo, a stylised six-pointed star over a red crescent moon, is a sigil designed after the Sumerian word pap-hal, with the second cuneiform sign enlarged and superimposed over the first; pap-hal has a similar meaning to the Greek root hupos in our name.
