Thoughts on it? Is that the proper spelling? What middle names would go with it?

Love that name, although I'd never use it.

You're aware she's the greek goddess of the underworld, correct?
I've always loved the name, but I wouldn't use it for my daughter.

And yes, it's the proper spelling.

I like the name, Persephone is right. An elegant but short middle name like Rose or Grace would suit it.

That's the correct spelling. For a middle-I'd go simple, basic, one or two syllables and something kind of plain, in case Persephone is just too much name for her.

I love the name but it's actually one I want to use on a pet one day... Lol but then again I've named pets stuff like "Bridgette" & "Leila"...

That is the correct spelling. I love that name.



I like middles like claire, Margarite, Greta, Pearl, Magnolia, Antionette, and a few other. But i dont know if that is your style.

I'm obsessed with Greek Mythology and names but this name, I cannot get on board with. Mostly because of the pronunciation. Stephanie has always been one of my most hated names and Persephone is too similar.



Some suggestions
Persephone Ottilie
Persephone Maren
Persephone Sibeal
Persephone Manon
Persephone Ines

Quoting LayLu:" You're aware she's the greek goddess of the underworld, correct? I've always loved the name, but I wouldn't use it for my daughter."


She was the queen of the underworld, she was abducted by Hades. She must stay half the year there and when she returns, the plant life comes alive...hence the seasons.



And OP, it's an awesome name. I had it on my short list for our daughter, but we went with Daphne, instead.

I wasn't sure, because the way you worded it sounded like you were trying to discourage her, based on the mythology.

Oh no, and I love the name. But if OP was a religious person, she might not like that the name was also the queen of the underworld's name lol just wanted to give her a heads up in case she didn't know the history. But I'm all for it. :D
