    Goddess/mythology names?

    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!

    My favorites:
    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.
