Love it, wasn't she one of the most beautiful of all the Greek Godessess? I can't remember the story exactly.
If you use it as a first name, be prepared for people to call her Cassie

Of all the Greek names I adore, this is not one of my favorites - I prefer Cassandra. Cassiopeia is pretty in it's own right though, and I think it's great as a middle name.



The Greek Cassiopeia was both beautiful and vein, which is why Poseidon made her sitting on a chair in her constellation - so that she would sometimes be upside down. She promised her daughter Andromeda to Perseus (after Perseus saved Andromeda), then changed her mind and convinced Agenor to interrupt the wedding. When he showed up with an army, there was a battle, and Perseus won using Medusa's head and turned everyone to stone.

Just thought I'd share that one for you, Irowe70. =)

It's cute, but I don't care for Cassie, so that takes it off my list.

Well, since my name is Cassie, I like it more than Cassiopeia. But since it's a middle name I would say go for it.

I like Cassiopeia a lot. I think if you use Cassiopeia as a middle name you should put it with a Roman/Greek sounding first name. Anna, Elena, Maria, etc.
