purplehaze Says:


My mom is named Uranía and its one of the most beautiful names I've heard. It's not popular so when someone talks about Uranía ___, everyone knows who she is. And honestly, the description thingie that says it would be "difficult to bear a muse's name here on Earth" is totally wrong; yes, my mom didn't like her name at first, but as she grew older she understood the beautiful meaning and took the uniqueness to her advantage. And yes, we're Greek.

Myosotis Says:


I'm really starting to crush on this name. I love the meaning, the fact she's the Muse of astronomy in Greek mythology, and I think it's far enough away from Uranus to use at least as a middle.
