    Mythological and Poetic Names for Girls

    I'd like to expand on the list of mythological and poetic girl names. I mostly like names from ancient Greece and Roman culture, but I am interested in names from just about all cultures. I also love names from old poems, names like: Eloise, Hero, Imogen, etc.

    Example of mythological names that I like are: Persephone, Talia, and Parisa.

    Can you give me more names that fit with these themes? Thank you.

    Ariel would be THE name to be both mythical and poetic to me.


    Iris
    Thea
    Hebe
    Thisbe
    Leda
    Hermione
    Thalia (or any of the muses)

    I like all these names except Hebe. I know I would LOVE the name Ariel, if I could shake the association of My Little Mermaid from my head.
