"Parthenophobia" is an abnormal and persistent fear of virgins or young girls.

Now that's out of the way, it is a stunning name. Beats Persephone, hands down.

I love Parthenope's nostalgic, willowy, aromatic beauty.

I am afraid ops does not mean voice. It's the face. The appearance.

This name is very snobbish and pretentious. It sounds like a name that was used by upper-class people in the Victorian era. Ironically, I find the similar-sounding name Parthenia to be lovely.

Why does every other Greek or Latin name have someone calling it pretentious in the comments? Maybe some people actually put some thought into naming their children--daughters, in this case--and don't want their daughters to be another Emily, Madison, Sarah, or other really common name. I, for one, happen to think Parthenope is lovely.
