I find it somewhat ironic that another name for Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is a name meaning "practical." Obviously Ancient Greece is very different from today's western society, but I would've thought that one thing both societies have in common is that love is highly impractical. Hmmmm...

As far as the name is concerned, though, I'm not much of a fan. It doesn't sound like a person's name, honestly. It's almost too... scientific, if that makes sense.

In terms of the epithet for the goddess Aphrodite, Praxis means "action" - as in, the action of sexual intercourse (source: theoi. Com).
