Orestes sounds a little mysterious to me for some reason. I actually quite like the name but considering what the character is known for, I'd be a little uneasy naming my son this.

In the myth Orestes was protected by Apollo from the Furies and eventually freed from them by Athena. I love that story, it shows Artemis, Apollo and Athena's good side compared to their bad.
