    The Goddesses

    Just how usable are goddess names? Both our girls have the Roman vesrions of Greek goddesses in their names. It's a tradition we'd like to continue. Some of my favorites:
    Athena
    Artemis (Thea is a great nn for both)
    Hero
    Phaedra
    Freja (super popular in AUS and UK)
    Do these carry too much weight in their original forms? Any others you might suggest?

    Personally, I love Phaedra. Beautiful but not too popular.

    I love greek mythology! which is why my dog's name is Athena so that's really all I can associate it with :/ But for Artemis you could use Diana which is the roman version. Personally, I think Diana is a lovely, elegant, and classic name.
    What are your other daughter's names? If you don't mind me asking

    Freja is popular here, though usually spelt Freya. It's very usable though not really my thing. I like Athena more but its more uncommon. I like Artemisia more than Artemis but that could be seen as making it even clunkier.

    My favourite goddess names are:
    Phoebe
    Iris
    Minerva (I prefer this to Athena)
    Isis
    Laetitia
    Demetria/Demeter
