    Mythological Names

    I'm really interested in names from mythology that are usable on a child today.
    I love that they have been in existence for so long and the stories and histories that come with the names.
    I am particularly fond of names from Greek mythology but others are great too... I'd love to head some ideas.
    Thanks

    I also like Beowulf. Wonder why there isn't an entry for this name? It's definitely a real name recorded in literature.

    I think the following names are somewhat usable, some of them are in French but I think those versions work too

    Girls
    Bérénice
    Antigone
    Hera
    Eurydice
    Thémis
    Danaé
    Calixte (from callisto)
    Thalie/Thalia
    Maia
    Astrée (Astrea)
    Circé

    Boys
    Calixte (from Callisto)
    Aristée (Aristaeus)
    Zéphyr
    Ulysse
    Calais (though its too place name for me and it might seem feminine to some)
    Orphée (Orpheus)



    And I plan on using Athénaïs one day and would consider Calixte, Aristée, Ulysse and Astrée
    Josephine Athénaïs - Josephine Ivy - Myriam Athénaïs - Vivienne Josephine
    Athena Beatrice - Beatrice Cecile - Eleanor Anne-Sophie -Myriam Beatrice - Meredith Elizabeth
    Ambrose Aristide - Ulysses Aristide

    Girls: Bérangère, Bérénice, Honorine, Mazarine Boys: Augustin, Emeric, Hugo, Lambert, Lucien, Maxence, Yves
