My English class has been reading Greek mythology for the past few weeks and, being the name nerd that I am, one of the most interesting parts for me was the names. Some are gorgeous, some are a little strange, and others are hard to pronounce. But all of them sound so strong. Anyway, I thought I’d list some of the interesting ones I’ve found throughout my reading. [name]Feel[/name] free to comment on them or add more.
Also, I should add that if there are names in parentheses next to the name, that’s because it’s the Greek gods’ [name]Roman[/name] names.
[name]Ariadne[/name] - love the nickname [name]Ari[/name]
[name]Phaedra[/name] - what do you think of this? The nickname [name]Faye[/name] would be cute
[name]Athena[/name] ([name]Minerva[/name]) - I love this
[name]Andromeda[/name] - I love the nickname [name]Andie[/name] for it
Megara - the nickname [name]Meg[/name] would be cute, could it be an alternative to [name]Megan[/name]?
[name]Jason[/name] - doesn’t this one feel out of place?
[name]Perseus[/name] - could this be used today?
[name]Atlas[/name] - I love this name
Anyway, feel free to comment, list favorites, add more, etc. [name]Just[/name] thought I should share with my fellow name lovers
