Philomela also means "nightingale", and is a different spelling of "Philomel", also feminine.

Poor Philomela. The name is good overall - there's no denying that - but I wouldn't recommend it because of the fate that befell the mythological Philomela.

It's a great name, I like the spelling a lot. It's very unique, not something you would see everyday.

People staying away from this lovely name due to a tragic bearer. That's like refusing to name your daughter Lucretia or Lavinia (the latter a Shakespeare character who suffered a fate similar to Philomela). However, these are all beautiful names.
