Penthesilea Origin and Meaning
The name Penthesilea is a girl's name meaning "mournful grip".
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.
