Gender: F Meaning of Calypso: "she who hides" Origin of Calypso: Greek

This hyper-rhythmic name has two evocative references. In Greek mythology, she was an island nymph, a daughter of Atlas, who delayed Odysseus from returning home. It is also a genre of West Indian music, originating in Trinidad and Tobago and largely popularized in the States by Harry Belafonte.

Calypso was the name of Jacques-Yves Cousteau's research ship--and would make a highly dramatic, musical choice.
