Thread: Goddess/mythology names?
June 25th, 2013 08:05 PM #1
Hi there! Not pregnant or anything, but brainstorming for my ever-changing girls list. My name is Freya and I've always thought the goddess connection was pretty cool, and I also like the relative unusual-ness of my name (I live in the U.S, and I've never met another Freya, though I know my name's very popular across the sea!) If you guys have any favorite goddess names or names with mythological connections, common or obscure, lay 'em on me!teenberry -- writer -- drama kidCurrent crushes (constantly changing):Girls: Thea, Aurelia, Rosalind, Rose, Rowena, Helena, Hermione, Carys, Clio, Cassia, Viola, Lily, Lila, Lucy, Seren, Maia, Mirabel.Boys: Miles, James, Jasper, Jude, Graham, Arthur, Oliver, Leo, Lewis, Wesley, Rory, Rowan, Caspian, Silas, Sebastian.

Elpis- I don't love it for its sound; it reminds me too much of Elvis. When Pandora opened the box, hope was the one thing left after everything else flew out. Elpis is considered the personification of hope.
Lorelei- The whole "luring sailors to their deaths with her song" thing is pretty negative, but the sound is heavenly.
Ceridwen- How cool would it be to be named after the goddess of poetry?
Guinevere- Fabulous Arthurian name that lends itself to the friendly nns Gwen or Gwyn.
Rhiannon- Means "great queen", and RiRi is possibly the cutest nn EVER.
Clio- Fabulously adorable name with serious mythological pedigree.
Isolde- Gorgeous, tragic myth.
Aurora- Not a fan of possible nn Rory, but Aurora itself is pure beauty.
Flora- Spunky grandma name.
Juno- I don't love the connection to the film, but the name itself is awesome.
Victoria- My all-time favorite name, and the goddess of victory.
Euphrosyne- One of the 3 Graces in Greek mythology. Beautiful sound.
Evadne- Lends itself to pretty nn Evie.
Phoebe- Lovely name that could fit anyone.
Isis- Familiar yet unusual, and oh so cool!
Phew! I think that's all.| Arabella Monet | Henrietta Plum | Isolde Noor | Agatha Ruby | Marian Primrose |
