|Reply to:||A contraction of "Clytemnestra"? Pavlos would know that name's meaning. n/t by Nanaea|
Clytemnestra -- or, Klytaimnestra -- is formed from:
"klytos," meaning "famous, noble, renowned"...and the verb
"mnaomai," meaning "to solicit a favor," "to court/woo" as well as "to be mindful of".
No wonder the gal ended up marrying Agamemnon , a king!
