Amazon Warrior Names
I did some research this evening on Amazon warrior names. I thought there were some pretty cool names, so I've decided to share them with you.
Names of Amazon Warriors:
Penthesilea (Silea on its own might be pretty as well)
Kleoptoleme (I would not recommend naming your daughter Kleoptoleme for various reasons, but it is an interesting name, so I thought it deserved to be included.)
Alkaia (Alcaia might be a nice alternate spelling if the k is too harsh, it makes it seem soft like Acacia.)
Thalestris (That I could see on a boy, though all Amazon warriors were women)
Toxaris (some people might think toxic, but I could sort of see it on a boy, even though it was originally-as far as I know- a female name. The meaning is archer.)
Names associated with Amazon warriors:
Amazon (Surely you saw that coming!)
Artemis- the Amazon warriors worshiped the Greek goddess Artemis.
Harmonia- Greek mythology describes them as descendants of the goddess Harmonia and the god Ares.
Ares- see above
Greecia- Okay, I admit I made that one up, but Amazon warriors are mentioned much in Greek mythology. And Greecia sounds cool.
Names with warrior meanings: (of course there are lots of them so I tried to pick some interesting ones)
Alyth- ascending, rising
Alivia- elf army
Andrea- man, warrior
Bellatrix- female warrior
Brielle- warrior of God
Clotilda- famous battle maid
Eadgyth- rich battle (modern form is Edith)
Earleen/Earlene/Earline- warrior, prince/princess
Hedwig- contending battle
Herminia- army man
Imelda- all warrior
Louella- famous warrior (I think it looks better spelled Luella, though)
Lulu- who would've thought sweet, innocent Lulu meant famous warrior?
Ptolema- aggressive, warlike (I wouldn't recommend it, but it still deserves a place here)
Romilda- famous battle
Tillie- mighty in battle
Thyra- Thor's warrior
Zelda- gray battle maiden
Which ones are your favorites?

I like Clotilda if you could get people to use the KLO-tilda like Chloe-matilda mashed, and not clot-ilda. But people will mess it up I think.
I do like Xantippe. But it's sort of a lot of name.
Zelda is very usable to me but I'm used to it having a different meaning "lucky" because I'm used to the Yiddish background. I don't think of it as a warrior name.
