Apparently I really like Greek Mythology as a name source. Ariadne is number one on my girl's list, and has been as long as I can remember. Hermione and Rhea (Raya) are also in my top 10. Here are some other names I like.. thoughts? (I added pronunciation on some of them, just in case)
Thisbe- I kind of like this
Eurydice (your-IHD-uh-see)- wouldn't use this
Niobe (NYE-oh-be)- not horrible but not a huge fan
Antigone (Ann-TIG-oh-nee or Ann-TIG-uh-nee)- like this one okay
Circe (sir-see)- I like this
Andromeda- not a fan
Ariadne (are-ee-AHD-nee)- not a huge fan but has grown on me since hearing it from you
Gaea (GUY-uh)- kind of like this
Hermione- not a fan
Calliope- I like this only for the nn Calli but don't like the full name
Io (EYE-oh)- too....short
Rhea (REE-uh)- this one is my favorite
Daedalus (DED-uh-lus)- don't care for this one
Agamemnon- I'm sure this one is easy to pronounce but I'm not going to attempt it...not a fan
Cadmus- I like this
Achilles (Uh-KIL-ease)- like this name
Actaeon (ACK-tee-on)- not a fan...don't like the ACK sound....too harsh
Oedipus (ED-eh-pus)- don't care for the story behind this name
Hermes- Is this pro Her-mees or Er-mes?
Theseus (THEE-see-us)- this one is nice
Perseus (PER-see-us)- this one is nice too
Overall if I were to use a name from Greek mythology it would have to be a more common easy to pronounce one...I don't care for many of them.
Hmm...I like the sound of many of these, but then I think about the fact that most of the characters died horrible, tragic deaths and/or were involved in incestuous relationships with their parents -- I'm not sure I'd want my child to start reading these stories when she got older and discover that that was her namesake!
I do really love Ariadne, though. It's beautiful, easy to pronounce yet very unique.
