Wonderful account of Kyrene! Btw, there was also another gal called Kyrene -- an unvirgin huntress in this case -- who was a famous Corinthian hetaera :)
As for the etymology I am a bit stumped, and can only make wild guesses. The name may be ether related to:
- Kyrebazo :To butt with the horns, like goats or rams do, or
- Kyrema: Windfall
