Our daughter is Rhea which is greek and I absolutely love it.

Athena is a cute one too

I like Ilithia.

Currently trying to name our boy
Husband likes Spartacus and I like Leonidas :sweat_smile:

My son’s name is Odin, I love the idea. Just make sure you look into what each one stands for. Aphrodite is a beautiful name but she was the godess of sexual love, hera is the godess of marriage and female life.

I named my daughter after a Greek goddess. No regrets. Her name is Eris.

Astraea was one of Zeus’ daughters

Persephone is pretty

My daughters name is Elizabella

Thena or Athena maybe?

We were going to use Helena Estelle or Lenora Louetta for a girl. We had a Jordan and a Benjamin(2 boys) instead!

Freya or Freyja Norse Goddess of love and war

I loved Hedi for a girl or Harris & Harvey for a boy!. I Really struggled with a baby boy name too but in the end I called him Marcus :slight_smile:

Remember that this child has to grow up with the name you pick, don’t go to far out there. Some children will be embarrassed by unusual names and it will cause them to be introverted.

Remember, your daughter has to live with the name you give her. Be careful what you decide to call her.

My daughter’s name is Calliope (could be Kaliopi) she is the Greek Muse of Poetry and the name means Beautiful voice. Poppy is a popular nickname for girls with the name. My daughter will answer to Calli but prefers her full name Calliope. ( we pronounce it ka-lee-o-pee)

I wanted to name my daughter Hera. Elora was my other choice. We named her I’La tho :laughing:

Don’t let anyone talk you out of a unique name. Maybe people should be teaching their kids to be accepting so kids don’t gotta worry about being made fun of for a name :unamused:

Name a girl a name that you know she will be able to live with from the time she is born until she dies at 100. Think of people teasing her and others scoffing and making remarks. I grew into my teens as people thinking i was a male. I later used it to my advantage but as a child why do you have a boy’s name. So think before you name they are not pets, they are humans that have to live in this untame world.

Take it from a Greek, the American pronunciation of these names actually destroys the beauty of these names. Hera in English honestly doesn’t even sound remotely like it should and also a little fun fact Hera is the most popular name for female mean looking dogs in Greece…I would bet at least 75%.

When naming a child, think ahead to his/her resume, college applications, job interviews. While I love unusual names, if it’s too long, hard to pronounce, hard to spell it could cause issues in the future. With that said, my daughter’s name is Scarlett. Good luck & congratulations

My daughter’s middle name is Iris, Diana, Freya and Athena are other good names. My favorite name as a kid was Astaria I thought it was so pretty. It’s not a God or goddess name but I always thought it would be a great one.

Not a Greek Goddess maybe, but I loved the name Kaia for a girl if I were to have had one. 3 boys, and happy now lol.

Charisma is one of my favorites.

Remember it may sound exotic on a birth certificate but it also has to be read off aloud in a room full of kindergartners and other grades. Don’t put anyone through hell on the playground just cause you felt like being different.
