From immortals to deities, to titans, and beyond, there are literally hundreds of figures that make up the body of Greek mythology, which are the teachings and myths that belong to the ancient Greeks. Some names are so well-known they’ve become household names, like Zeus, whereas others like Gaia and Astraea may not be as synonymous with Greek mythology, but are just as significant. I’ve rounded up over 30 of the names I thought best suited for our modern times, and compiled a list rich with heritage and meaning. If you love ancient Greek mythology, and Greek literature, then this is the list you should be browsing as you try and decide on the perfect name for your little one.

I know it’s not for everyone, all the gore…blood and guts of The Walking Dead. But you GUYS?! It’s Zombie Apocalypse Week! I certainly wasn’t a fan when the show first came out. I couldn’t understand why everyone was so into it! Then…somehow, some way, I gave in.
Excellent writing, characters that pull you in, great acting and an overall compelling storyline are the leading factors in how this hot hit series became one of my own favourites to watch. And many others, if Facebook is any indication. A couple of weeks ago, everyone was all a-flutter about Breaking Bad and now we’re all (you’re NOT?!) wiggling in anticipation for the season premiere of The Walking Dead this Sunday!
If you ask me, (and you are if you’re reading this), with Hallowe’en coming up, this is the perfect time to take a gander at the seriously awesome names belonging to the characters of said gory TV show. Seriously y’all, there are some gooders in here! As you’ll soon be able to tell, I had fun with this and kept things pretty tame visually. As much fun as it is to joke around about babies and toddlers being zombies, I just couldn’t bring myself to fully zombify a picture of my sweet boy!

Are you a Harry Potter fan? I still remember when my mom read the first book aloud to my siblings and me, and how, within one chapter, we were all deeply in love.
We went to the midnight sales of the last four books, we attended midnight movie showings as a family and now, as an parent, I’m eagerly awaiting the day when my girls are old enough for me to introduce them to the magic of Hogwarts.
Of course, one of the things that makes those books so magical is the vast cast of characters, each with their own back story and personality. The books also make a great repository of possible baby names.
I’m not suggesting “Dumbledore” or “Hufflepuff” (is there any baby in the world cute enough to pull off a name like “Hufflepuff”?), but there are plenty of great names in J.K. Rowling’s enormous wizarding world that won’t raise Muggle eyebrows.
Looking at these names made me want to read the whole series again. Here are my favorites:
