Honest, but gentle, opinions on this name
I absolutely love this name - I've always adored it, but been too afraid to use it. I have a massive love for Greek names in general, especially after I lived in Greece for some time.
The name is Artemisia. (ar-teh-mi-si-ah)
I know some people think its too frilly and too much name - and most prefer Artemis, but I love the story behind the name. Some would see it as negative, but like the name Lilith (another love of mine) I see the bearers of this name as real heroines of women. A queen, a naval commander and a famous painter - achiving things that should've been impossible to women!
I wouldn't use it as a first name - but was thinking of using it with Rosalin (rose-a-lin).
Rosalin Artemisia Lux
Our last name isn't long and the name together isn't longer than my name, so length doesn't bother me. But.. I'm still afraid to use it. More for my potential daughters sake. Is it a horrible name? Again, please be gentle. I know it won't fall in most peoples taste!
