No idea but it sounds like a disease or medication.

Hy-pay-she-ah or Hy-pat-ee-ah



I love this name for the history. She was one of the first female philosophers / intellectuals, I BELIEVE she was in charge of the library in Alexandria, though I may be mistaken on that point, but I am pretty positive she was murdered by Christian monks for being a female intellectual.

I'm not sure of the history of this name particularly, but yeah - makes sense, since Christianity hadn't taken a hold quite yet.



Either way, I think she is an admirable namesake for any woman to carry.
