My start sounds Greek

My middle leads a life of two-toes

My end will break your bones

What am I?

Is it

Fiddlesticks

My start sounds Greek

Fi sounds like the greek letter phi

My middle leads a life of two-toes

iddle sort of looks like idle which is what a two-toed sloth is for a majority of its lifetime

My end will break your bones

Sticks and stones may break my bones.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, that's it! The title of the question was meant as a clue as well, if course. $\endgroup$ – Gnudiff Apr 12 '18 at 15:24

Is it

Oligodactyly?

The start is a Greek prefix

oligo

Before being changed,

the condition leaves me with only two toes

To change,

bones must be broken during surgery to add new digits

Could it be

Pizza

The start sounds greek

Pi is a greek letter

The middle leads a life of two toes

Two-toed sloths are associated with sleeping and laziness "zz" is also a sound associated with sleeping or laziness.

However the last line doesn't seem to quite fit. Perhaps it is something else related.
