[QUOTE]"I wonder if Victor has some elucidations on the meaning of that name."
As for local origin, I would guess Cypriot; Cyprus was, after all, a British protectorate in the past century, and many Greek-Cypriots emigrated to Britain in the course of events. Still, the clan-name is not exclusive (as, e.g. is Mytilenean Kioulaphides # )
Neophytos is, of course, a neophyte, someone newly initiated/converted; several saints bear that name, as they were more often than not prior non-Christians converted to Christianity later in life, hence neophytes. The "Hadji-" prefix is borrowed from the Muslims, who go on a "Haj" or pilgrimage to Mecca, and subsequently assume the suffix to their name as e.g. "Ahmed the Pilgrim". In the case of Greeks and Greek-Cypriots, of course, the historical indication is that some ancestor did make a pilgrimage to the respective Holy Land, i.e. Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Galilee, etc.
Cypriots especially, being ideally located for a quick pilgrimage by boat, bear names like Hadjiioannou, Hadjiandreou, Hadjigeorgiou, etc. very, very commonly.
All this by way of a guess. I am neither a linguist nor a pilgrim.
