Greek Myth Names: Beyond Athena and Orion (WIP)

If you are passionate about mythology or have Greek heritage, why settle for a well known name such as Persephone or Iris? These names are inexplicably tied with mythology, but the following are unusual names with a history spanning millennia. Goodbye, Apollo and Artemis, hello Elpis and Acheron. (I suggest looking up the pronunciation, but two important rules are that the 'e' at the end is always pronounced 'ee' and that the c makes a hard kuh sound like in car.) - Created by Aurra
