I named my daughter Olympia in 2009. We have not met another Olympia in person... yet. My daughter suits her name very well. She's very loving and intelligent. We've never shortened the name ourselves, keeping true to the mouthful it can be. Though younger cousins have called her 'limpy' which I detest. She already owns her name and even as a baby it fit her so perfectly.

I really like this name. I think it sounds beautiful and I like the origin of it as well. Not to mention, geography lovers like me could claim this for the capital of the US state of Washington, like Sofia (Bulgaria). Anyway I am sure that the city is named because of Greece.

Olympia is Alexander the Greats' mother. The Olympics were named after her. Sports from the Ancient Greeks was a way to have a peace agreement form. It was just the same place where Alexander the Great and Olympia run away from King Phillip II after marrying Cleopatra. Olympia was the birth place of Olympia.

Hey, it is great to hear the lovely nicknames of Olympia. I have heard so many people say wonderful things about my name and yet I'm finally growing into it. Im 38. Peers used to constantly ask if I was in the Olympics. Its nice to read these comments. Thank you!

Quite strong and regal, but very wearable. The mother of Alexander the Great was named the similar-sounding Olympias.

This is a beautiful name. It sounds very mature but it has cute nicknames like Oly, Ollie, and Lia. I imagine a tall, intelligent, and graceful woman with dark hair when I hear it.

I know a girl named Olympia, and she usually goes by Oly - probably because her name is quite "stately", as another poster pointed out. It is a very beautiful name, though.

I quite like this name; it reminds me quite a lot of Greek and Roman architecture, as in the columns and pillars which adorn many wonderful superstructures throughout the Mediterranean world. :)

I always assumed Olympia meant 'heavenly'. If this is true, then it just adds to the beauty of an already stunning name.

*Olympia* is nothing but classy. Even though it has to be grown into, any female would be fortunate to bear such a stately name.

I only know one girl in Sweden with this name, she's Polish. She only goes by Ia, hates her full name. I think it's a shame, the name is nice. I would like to call her Pia, but that has not been given as an option.
