I really like Olympia, and Marina.
I have Greek family and would love a name that has Greek origin.
For a bit, I'm really not sure..
Open to any suggestions! I do like Christos but not sure it'd be well-received.

How about Thalia, Xanthe or Amara?

Cheepcheepcheep · 01/01/2024 20:27

I know a Greek Ariadne and she is fabulous.

Melindaverga · 01/01/2024 20:28

Thank you, I do like Xanthe especially, would Thalia be pronounced as a 'Th' as opposed to a T? That would be my only concern

I like both Olympia and Marina
I like Ondine (is this Greek?) Nerissa (not actually Greek, but probably based on Nereis), Phoebe, Dorothea, Anastasia and Melissa (I prefer this over Melitta)

I know both a Thalia and a Talia - both pronounced the same (T rather than Th)

Melissa

Olympia and Marina - is there an expectation of being sporty or into boating/ harbours? I don't think Marina is used enough because of the meaning.

Sofia
Electra
Anastasia
Cassia
Eleni
Iris
Ariana
