    Possible Greek / Latin Names?

    I find I'm drawn to the Greek and Latin names, the only problem is I don't want the names tied to a God or Goddess, are there any nice names out there that don't derive from a God or Goddess?
    Possible Names:

    Liam Ezra Aoife Roisin Fionn Mordecai Clara Rosemary Leo Benedict Eloise Clodagh

    Lysander * Hyperion * Oliver * Roderick * Seamus * Niall * Edmund * Draco * Tadhg
    Lilyanna * Lux * Saoirse * Helena * Emma * Luna * Ellie * Ava * Arurora

    Definitely. Many latin words are used as names. Here are a few off the top of my head:

    Luna -- "moon" in many languages, actually.
    Maris -- "of the sea"
    Stella -- "star"
    Amia
    Lux

    Greek: Lots of greek flower names end in "antha" or "anthe". There are a ton of Greek names not related to gods and goddesses. It might be useful to just search "greek names" on here.

    Calantha
    Ione
    Xanthe
