Eurydice is also the name of Creon's wife in the play Antigone. Near the end of the play, she kills herself after she hears that her son has killed himself.

I would like to use this. Unfortunately, I think of Creon's wife in Antigone. There are soooooooo many good names in that play but they are often ruined by association.

I don't think of Antigone as ruining the name by association. If anything, it gives you a good opportunity to teach the child classic literature, as well as giving them something to be proud of. How many of their friends will be able to pick up a piece of ancient literature and point to their names in the pages?

I prefer Eurydike because Eurydice doesn't sound so great in English.

Cleopatra Eurydike was the niece of one of King Phillip II's generals, Atallus, and one of Phillip's wives. When Phillip's other wife, Olympias, killed her children, she took her own life.

I love this name. The myth is tragic, but I think the love Orpheus has for Eurydice is inspiring and (obviously) heart-wrenchingly romantic. The name itself has such a pretty sound to it, and the nickname Eury (yuri) could be cute for a little girl. Beautiful name.

The Greek pronunciation of this name is ev-ree-THEE-kee. "Evie" could be a cute nickname.
