Although various official and semi-official appellations were used during the early decades of independent statehood, the title of Prime Minister has been the formal designation of the office at least since 1843.

Note on transliteration

There is no firm convention for the rendering of Greek personal names into English. Traditionally, Greek names were latinized in spelling (thus, Sophoklēs became Sophocles and Aiskhýlos became Aeschylus), and also Anglicised in form (thus, Georgios became George and Alexandros became Alexander). English-speaking readers are more used to seeing (for example) Constantine Karamanlis than Konstantinos Karamanlis. His namesake nephew and former prime minister invariably uses the less formal version (Kostas) of his given name.

Recently there has been an increasing tendency to use the Greek forms, to reflect a more realistic version of how the actual name sounds, but sometimes there is no consistency (Andreas Papandreou, for example, is never called Andrew Papandreou, but George Papandreou,the incumbent Prime Minister, is never called Giorgios Papandreou, but can also be called Georgios Papandreou). Also certain Greek consonants do not have exact counterparts in English. Reflecting this inconsistency, this table uses Greek forms wherever possible, except for those Prime Ministers for whose names an Anglicised form is established due to the absence of a corresponding English consonant.
