WDYT of Elysium?

In Greek Mythology, Elysium was the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous. It was Heaven.

ETA: Pronounced ee-LEE-see-um, or ee-LEE-zee-um.

its a bit too obscure of a reference for my taste. I don't like how it ends in "um"

I think it could be pulled off b/c it has the common "E-lee" sound that some of today's common names do but at the same time it's kind of out there....

I'm not sure how I feel about it.

It looks like the name of a prescription to me.

I don't think the name itself looks nice, but I like how it sounds.
