I think it is more important to think about what a name is associated with, rather than a direct translation - which could be wrong anyways. When I hear Ajax
(which I've heard could also actually mean "eagle"), I think of the great warrior. And Persephone
is the beautiful maiden captured by Hades
, whose mother inflicts winter upon the earth when her daughter spends her 6 monthes there.
When I think of negative names, I'm thinking more like 'Adolph
wolf" btw), 'Osama
' and 'Saddam
' really. Just due to fairly modern bad connotations.
