The meaning of Oracle is ‘prophecy’. It is a name typically given to boys and is of Greek origin. It comes from the Latin word 'ōrāre’ meaning ‘to speak’. The modern definition for oracle is ‘communicator of a divine message or command or message’ or ‘a prophet’. In Greek mythology, the name Pythia is associated with a priestess known as the Oracle of Delphi. Oracles are seers who are believed to give people prophecies and act as a conduit of knowledge, so they are considered as centers or mediums between the unknown and the intrigued. An oracle also refers to a shrine where a prophetic deity may reside. Oracle is the name of a tech company based in the United States. It was founded in 1977 and has since risen to become the world's second largest software company. Oracle is thought to have been named after a CIA project known as 'Project Oracle.'
