Names For Characters (Girls)

Names that I like, but don't think will ever be usable for my future kids, so I use them on characters instead (my brain children), because you can be a little more creative with their names. I have a soft spot for mythological names, as a huge mythology nerd. And I love names with Greek origins, because I'm Greek. - Created by HarderToBreathe
