I am hoping to find some information on the Terakedis surname (origin and meaning). I do know that he was born in Ordu, Turkey, so he was probably Pontian. I have never been able to find the Terakedis name in Greece and my family is the only ones in the USA with this surname. I found my great grandfathers shipping manifest and they have his surname spelled Tyrekidis. My grandfather insists that their name was always Terakedis, but I think he is mistaken.

Also, I have his marriage certificate and I am having a hard time figuring his mothers maiden name. It looks like Mainidis or Maenidis. Anyone have an idea what it may be?

You could try searching using alternative spellings such as Tirakidis or Tyrakidis
In Greek it would be spelled Τιρακίδης or Τυρακίδης

There are quite a few people on facebook, etc... with the Tyrekidis name.

There you go. Send them a note and ask them some info about their family background. You may get some leads.
