Gender: F Origin of Atalanta: Greek mythology name

Atalanta was a beautiful mythological maiden who refused to marry any man who couldn't beat her in a footrace -- quite a role model. This myth is found in Ovid's Metamorphoses and later in Swinburne's Atalantis in Calydon.

The addition of a fourth 'a' takes this out of the area of place names into a more rhythmic and romantic realm.
