Help! I'm trying to create a name using Greek!

Ok so the name "Alexander" I've heard comes from the Greek name Αλεξανδρος (Alexandros), which meant "defending men" from Greek αλεξω (alexo) "to defend, help" and ανηρ (aner) "man" (genitive ανδρος) Basically I want to try to create a name that would mean the opposite of that something along the lines of "destroying men" or "killing men", something like that. Messing around with wordreference and google translate, i've come up with θανατώδρος but i'm not sure if that would work in the way that i'm trying to intend. I'm trying to write a character around it, please help!
