This is a wonderful name. And I think there is a song with Nick Cave about him.

This would be a cool name for a black cat, but for a person, it's a tad too pompous.

I like the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, but as a name it's a bit odd.

I love this name! The book "The Princetta" by AnneLaure Bondoux has a character in it named Captain Orpheus McBott.

In Greek mythology Orpheus was the son of Apollo and Kalliope, and the brother of Linus.

Orpheus in the myth was gay.

Yeah, and he supposedly introduced the eromenos-erastes system to the Thrakians.

I didn't know who "Orpheus" was. I knew this name from "Samba de Orfeu" by Louiz Bonfa and the anime "Phi Brain". I like how this name sounds like :3 (Umm, no "Orfeu" variant?)

Love this name, very handsome! I'm a fan of most unusual ancient Greek names though. Also the Orpheus and Eurydice myth is one of my favourites. The only potential fault I can see with Orpheus is the lack of usable nicknames.

PS: To some posters above, Orpheus was not 'gay', it even says in the description he had a wife! At the most he was bisexual. And even then... does it really matter?
