Meaning & History
Latinized form of Aktaie and Aktaia, both of which derive from Greek ἁκτή (akte) "headland, sea-coast, shore" (compare the masculine equivalent Aktaios and its latinized form Actaeus). This was the name of two minor characters in Greek mythology: one of the Nereids and one of the Danaïdes (the daughters of Danaus).
