These Chic Greek Baby Names Are Fit for a Mythical God or Goddess

As with anything in history, women were fundamental in the development of science, philosophy and math — although they weren’t always acknowledged for their contributions. Women like Diotima of Mantinea (a philosopher who inspired Plato), Agnodice (a physician and midwife) and Hypatia of Alexandria (an influential scientist, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher) changed the course of history with their research and work and deserve to be lauded among their male peers.

While flesh-and-blood women didn’t always get the praise they deserved in Ancient Greece, the Greeks did revere their goddesses; and, no, we’re not just talking about Aphrodite. Athena made men humble as the goddess of wisdom, Nike made men kneel as the goddess of victory and Gaia gave men a place to live as the goddess and embodiment of the Earth.

If you’re looking for a more feminine name appropriate for all genders for your tiny god(dess), look no further than these Grecian gems.
