PERSEPHONE
Gender: Feminine
Usage: Greek Mythology
Other Scripts: Περσεφονη (Ancient Greek)
Pronounced: pər-SEF-ə-nee (English)

Meaning unknown, perhaps related to Greek περθω (pertho) "to destroy" and φονη (phone) "murder". In Greek myth she was the daughter of Demeter and Zeus. She was abducted to the underworld by Hades, but was eventually allowed to return to the surface for part of the year. The result of her comings and goings is the changing of the seasons.

Dislike it. Plus I taught Ancient Greek studies and I KNOW that it would be mispronounced VVEEERY often.

I like it. Maybe not for a person, but it would be a good name for a cat.
