Orestes is famous for being tormented by the Furies, nine gods whose express purpose is to punish those who kill their mothers.

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.

I like the sound of this name, but not the association with the mythological character.

This name makes me laugh from every aspect. Even so, I'm not saying that it shouldnt be considered;

Derives from Greek "Ορεστις" deriving from: ορνυμι= to rebel.

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.

I'm surprised that there are a couple saints with this name given the story about the mythical character killing his mom.
