Another meaning of the name in Greek is "good reputation". In Greek mythology, Euphemia was a daughter of Hephestos and Aglaia.

To me it sounds like something you get chemo for.

Euphemia Li Britannia, from Code Geass, is a bearer of this name.

It does sound rather like an illness.

The name sounds like a disease, and it is too reminiscent of 'euphemism'.

My name is Euphemia! My first name, anyway. Most people calle my Effie or Ef, and my mum calls my Phemia. I actually really enjoy having it, besides people misunderstanding that you're saying your name. "You have what?" Yeah. It's really rare, so I like it.

This sounds far too close to "euphemism". And since I use euphemisms all the time, this is not a name I am going to be using in the near future.

I have a friend who plays the Euphonium, which is a brass instrument that looks like a small Tuba. This is the only image I can conjour up when reading/hearing this name.

This name looks and sounds like a disease! Not a very great name in my opinion.

This is such a beautiful name! I love that it is very feminine but not in a sickeningly sweet way. Plus it is really uncommon but not weird.

Euphemia in Code Geass was nicknamed Euphie, which I think is a cute alternative to Effie. :)

Gosh, this name hardly screams 'disease!' to me at all. It is wonderful.

Another diminutive form or nickname could be "Euphie".

Euphemia is a character in the 1977 fantasy novel Charmed Life by Diana Wynne Jones. Her name is somewhat of a joke to other characters for sounding "like a disease".
