Gender: F Meaning of Salome: "peace" Origin of Salome: Hebrew

Salome was a Biblical dancer whose unseemly story involving John the Baptist's head on a platter has in the past made parents shy away from her name, but the stigma is definitely fading. Ex-ER star Alex Kingston named her daughter Salome Violetta.

Oscar Wilde wrote a play called Salome in 1893 and Richard Strauss based an opera on it twelve years later. A similarly seductive vampire Salome appeared on True Blood.
