Comments for Euphemia (Meaning / History Only)

I'm Euphemia from California but go by Effy as it's easier for people to say. It means that you are well spoken of and have auspicious speech. Originally it was derived from Greek and Saint Euphemia who was a 4th Century Greek Virgin Martyr... go figure ;))))). I've also heard that it means a star as well. I used to complain and grumble to my mother for giving me such an unusual name but now that I'm in my late 30s I feel as though I've come into my own and feel comfortable in my own skin with this moniker. It's an unusual name but aptly so for whosoever that is ordained this name is bound to be unique and destined for a vividly colorful life.

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