English term or phrase: Griffin, Order of The Griffin
Anything relating to the acronym A.E.K.D.B. (if you know what that means please let me know) or fraternities, or pledging. If you know common Greek words that are fraternity related I'd appreciate them.

Please specify the term, the context, the source language, and the target language.

Dear John,

You have posted a question on KudoZ at In this forum, individuals who encounter difficult terms in the course of translation work or everyday communication solicit the help of their colleagues. They specify the term they are trying to translate, the context in which the term appears, the source language, and the target language.

If you are simply looking up general information about a topic, you may want to do an Internet search, either by looking up the key words in an online encyclopedia or by using one of the many search engines.

Thank you very much.

some hints and suggestions:

Dear John
Your question is somehow vague and I have the feeling that you are not seeking an Arabic translation but an explanation. In case I am mistaken here are some hints and suggestions:

Griffin or griffon
If this word refers to: (a mythical animal typically having the head, forepart, and wings of an eagle and the body, hind legs, and tail of a lion) it is (in Arabic):
alghirfeen: الغرفين
If the word griffin (phoenix) refers to: (a legendary bird which according to one account lived 500 years, burned itself to ashes on a pyre, and rose alive from the ashes to live another period) it is:
Ala’nkaa’: العنقاء

Order of the griffin:
A group of people united in a formal way:
Akhaaweeyaato alghirfeen: أخوية الغرفين
Or: u’dweeyaato alghirfeen: عضوية الغرفين
Badge or sign worn by members:
Weessaam alghirfeen: وسام الغرفين
Or meedaliyaato alghirfeen: ميدالية الغرفين
If you are looking for some words used by fraternities:

I don’t know what the acronym (AEKDB) stands for, but kappa sigma fraternity usually uses it.
