    Galatea and Pandora

    I've just fallen in love with Galatea (of the Pygmalion myth) and Pandora, and I would love to know what you think. Also, what nicknames and middle names would work? I love Tea (tee-uh, not tee) and Dora, but what others would work?

    Re: Galatea and Pandora

    I love both names! Tea, definitely, for Galatea...possibly Gala? Or Gallie/Gally (like Callie with a G)...and I adore the name Pandora, and the nn Dora, but what about Pan (like the satyr?) or Andie/Pandie? Pandie is a bit of a stretch (maybe one that just you would call her) and the name of a panda puppet I was forced to tell my feelings to in grade school, but still a viable option. Good luck!

    Re: Galatea and Pandora

    I really like Galatea. I pronounce it gal-uh-TAY-uh, though-- I don't know if that's correct or not. Tea is a great nickname. I also love the slight Harry Potter connection. :)

    Galatea Violet

    Pandora is nice, but it reminds me (obviously) of the myth of Pandora's box. Plus it sounds a lot like pandas.

    Pandora Vivienne
    Pandora Maeve
    Pandora Celeste

    I actually like the Panda thing, it might be a cute nickname. And I also prefer the gal-uh-TAY-uh pronunciation, but Nameberry says its gal-uh-TEH-uh. Which seems a bit awkward to me, but I'm not sure. I'll have to consult someone who knows a lot about history. And I'm familiar with the Pandora myth, but Pandora was also very beautiful and graceful and that's what I think of.
