    You noticed! I was using Iris as a flower name and hoping maybe to squeak past the goddess association. Not that it's a bad thing, but it's makes the combo a bit much to have so much mythology going on.

    I guess I'm the exception :-) Besides my cat, whose name is Iris, the only other thing I think of is the Greek goddess. Though the flower is always in the back of my mind.

    I'm kind of a fan of the double dose though, i think it's cool <3

    Love the name, by the way! Very pretty.

    I think it's fantastic and the rhythm is great-- it's pleasant without being sing-songy.

    I love it! I love both names, with a special fondness for Athena because of the song by The Who
