  1. I have a love for mythology so it was the perfect fit.

  2. Persephone is the Greek Goddess of Spring. Daughter of Demeter and Zeus, Persephone is the beautiful goddess of spring. She is called Kore: Beautiful Maiden, She is also the Queen of the Underworld. Her story is one of abduction, love, grief, and celebration.

    I’ve overcome a lot in my life and I realize that she will as well. The world we live in sadly is hell to thrive in. This little girl is a survivor and she will not only survive but rule the world she lives in.. I knew from the beginning, the moment I connected with her energy I felt that she was strong. Now that I’ve met her I believe her name to be perfect. It was actually tossed out as a joke name originally but everybody in the room got chills as we saw her little feet kicking around my belly. It was then that we knew…

  3. We chose Persephone because it’s unique but simple. The name is easy to spell despite having a beautiful pronunciation. The name comes from Greek Mythology, and Persephone is the goddess of spring. Perfect for our April (supposed to be may) baby.

  4. We chose it and love it because it is unique, rare and difficult to shorten into a nickname. It had a beautiful ring to it and we also loved the mythology behind it. Everyone comments on how beautiful a name it is.

    The thing I don’t like it that people assume I’m saying Stephanie when I introduce her. Having to spell it out is annoying at times and people mispronouncing it (since it looks like purse-phone ).

    We gave her a middle name that was simple in case she wants to use her middle name in the future instead of her first name (due to the difficulties).
