Just that really. What thoughts/opinions does this name bring up for you?

Ohh I dunno - I don’t really relate to names that way.

But Athena is one of my favourite names for a girl. Love it and I wish I could go back and name one of my daughters that!

Nice name but it doesn't bring up anything in particular.

Like the name but it does remind me of a poster shop from the 80s.

It reminds me of the shop

At first glance I thought it was Anthea - and my first thought was Anthea Turner lol! But when I saw Athena, I think Greek goddess, I picture a tall and beautiful girl.

Picture of a girl in tennis outfit , you know the one grin but as a name it's beautiful

If you are in the same line of work, is it also known as Fucking Athena? 😁

That tennis poster...

Redcart21 Tue 20-Apr-21 19:50:44

I’ve no idea what the poster shop is !

The man with that baby!

The grey eyed goddess of wisdom, symbolised by the little owl. Beautiful!

Ninkanink Tue 20-Apr-21 19:51:58

Oh I remember the poster shop!

Bare chested man with baby... 😁

Still love the name, though.

I love the name

It conjures up someone who has brains & beauty

Ninkanink Tue 20-Apr-21 19:55:27

At least I think he was bare chested! blush Maybe I imagined that bit...

confuseddotcomma Tue 20-Apr-21 19:55:33

Very, very posh

Brains and beauty, and presence.

We had Athena at the top of our list. Had a ds though..

Ninkanink Tue 20-Apr-21 19:57:42

Did you name him Apollo?

JayAlfredPrufrock Tue 20-Apr-21 19:58:00

It’s a beautiful name.

Although I am old enough to remember the shop and the tennis girl scratching her arse.

TheDaydreamBelievers Tue 20-Apr-21 19:58:38

Beautiful, clever, confident girl... from a wealthy background (if I'm honest!)

I like it, it's very popular where I live though so yours might not be the only one in her class/swimming lesson etc etc if that's what you where going for?
