Names That Mean Grip

  1. Penthesilea
    • Origin:

    • Meaning:

      "mournful grip"
    • Description:

      An interesting figure from Greek mythology -- an Amazon queen who fought for Troy in the Trojan War -- but no figure could be interesting enough to make that five-syllable mouthful usable today. Stick with Penelope or, if that's too popular for your taste, try Thessaly.
