Archmandrid Kyprianou Street in Nicosia is named after Archbishop Makarios III's close associate, the Very Reverend Kyprianos Kyprianou, an important figure in the Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Cyprus faced political turmoil and violence due to tensions between the Greek and Turkish communities. President Makarios sought a peaceful solution to the conflict but was opposed by some who wanted enosis (union with Greece). A military junta in Greece backed paramilitary groups in Cyprus, and tensions escalated with incidents and attacks. Archbishop Makarios faced opposition from within the Church as well but remained a powerful and popular leader. Despite pressure from Greece, Makarios refused to make concessions that would compromise Cyprus' independence. The conflict continued, eventually leading to a period of armed civil war until the death of guerrilla leader Grivas and political changes in Greece shifted the balance of power.

Kyprianos Kyprianou (1932-2002) was a Cypriot politician who served as the President of the House of Representatives of Cyprus, as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Defense. He played a significant role in the struggle for Cypriot independence and served as a negotiator during the Cyprus dispute. He was also instrumental in the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus and the drafting of its constitution. Kyprianou Street in Nicosia is named after him in recognition of his contributions to the country.
