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.

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.
