I think I prefer Symphony over Epiphany. Still kinda interesting at least though. If I knew an Epiphany on a personable level I might feel inclined to calling her Pippy for short

Daiseymae Says:


I first came across this name from the film "Angel Heart' from 1987.

JossieChris Says:


This checks off a lot of boxes for me with the lovely meaning "striking appearance", I like that it has Shakespeare Twelfth Night ties, Greek, Catholic and my favorite nn Pippi. Jan is the Feast of the Epiphany so that would be perfect for a Capricorn baby. But does it have to much, I don't think so.

Reminds me of the nurse in General Hospital. :-D

It makes me think of the character Epifania that Sofia Loren played.

Impwood Says:


This is too much of the feast of Epiphany to me, but it does have the benefit of a score of pretty potential diminutives -- Effie, Eppie, Pip, etc.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I love the name Epiphany. It makes me think of an Amazon princess, for some reason that I'm not really sure of. Annie would be a cute nickname.
