Comments for the name Andromache

Comments for ANDROMACHE:

"Battle of a man" really makes no sense to me. "Fighting man", perhaps, but not as a female name. "Fights like a man"? Also unlikely. And the character in the Iliad is the model of a soldier's wife - loyal, supportive, warm and loving; not a bit aggressive. Perhaps it could be something like "Belongs to a man of conflict", which makes us shudder but would have been A-OK in antiquity.
