It appears in Roman mythology as the female half of the proto-Romeo and Juliet couple of Pyramus and Thisbe. Their story may be found on Wikipedia (, Encyclopedia Mythica (,, and Timeless Myths (

I'm sorry, I don't know Thisbe's meaning. And while Encyclopedia Mythica says Thisbe's pronounced THIZ-bee, I have no idea whether that's the original pronunciation or not.
