The name of Greek singer Despina Vandi, best known outside of Greece for her song "Gia."

This name is common in Greek. I don't like this name because of the P sound. If you were to shorten it to Desi then it would be fine. The meaning comes from the Greek Orthodox religion and also means Miss in modern Greek.

Despina is also the Russian form of Despoina.
