I didn't actually know how to even pronounce the name. It comes across as a pretentious name that many people will not be able to pronounce right, and the parents will grit their teeth over the fact that some people just aren't on their level of knowledge. It's not pretty at all, either.

It's mnee-moh-SEE-nee and it's just a Greek word, it's not used as a name in Greece. There are many words used as names for gods and godesses in Greek mythology. That doesn't mean they are used as real names.

Mnemosyne sounds okay (once I learned how to pronounce it), but I'm sorry, it's more confusing than Anemone--and that's saying something.

There's nothing really particularly wrong with this name, but I could only use it under archaic circumstances. Where I to write a novel featuring a Mnemosyne, it would most likely be set in Ancient Greece, because it doesn't resonate strongly elsewhere; which I find sad, because it's a very beautiful name, especially when pronounced correctly. It has an air of regal authority, and beauty, that I find very striking in its way. I love this name, and if it were not so archaic, I'd feel only respect for a bearer.

This name is feminine and romantic. The only problem is that it takes a while to learn how to pronounce it.
