what are you favorite legend/mythology names?

Well, being an absolute sucker for the heritage of my country, and Scandinavia in general, obviously I too am a sucker for names from the Norse mythology (more thorough list in my signature, if anyone's interested):
Magne (Magni): The son of Thor and brother of Modi (Móði), his name is meaning "strong".
Njord (Njörðr): Norse god, and father of Frej (Freyr) and Freja (Freyja), he's strongly associated with the sea and is generally thought to be the Norse Poseidon.
Fenris (Fenrir): The gigantic wolf, and son of Loke (Loki).
Loke (Loki): Both a god and a jötunn, was good friends with the other gods until he causes the death of Odin's favourite son, Balder (Baldr).
Frej (Freyr): Son of Njord (Njörðr) and brother of Freja (Freyja), associated with kingship and prosperity. His name means "lord".
Saga (Sága): A Norse goddess, her name means "seeress".
Gefion (Gefjun): A Norse goddess who created the Danish island, Zealand. Her name means "giving".
Røskva: Sister of Tjalfe (Þjálfi) and servant to Thor. Her name is meaning "grow".
Frigg: Norse goddess, wife of Odin and mother of Balder (Baldr), meaning "love".
Embla: One of the two first human beings created by the gods (the female of the two, with the male being Ask). Presumed to mean "elm tree" (where Ask means "ash tree"), but there's still some uncertainty about the etymology of the name.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

Ariadne, Isis, Saga, Juno, Orion, and Phoenix, plus Echo and Hero as guilty pleasures. I'm probably missing some, there are a lot of really good ones. Some of them are even better because of their stories- Isis, for example, traveled the world to pick up the pieces of her murdered husband, then put them back together to revive him. I'm not a terribly eloquent storyteller, but it's a really beautiful myth.

All of them. But actually, quite a few.
For most of them, I like the story. For a few, I'm not a fan of the story but love the name.
