Maybe for a character, but not a real person.

Pretty, elegant, and mystical, but I’m more fond of Artemis. It’s easier to say for one thing, and Artemisia can be a bit over the top for a little girl. It sounds more like a book character.

Another famous bearer of the name was Artemisia I of Caria (Persian:آرتمیس‎‎). She was a Queen of the ancient Greek city-state of Halicarnassus, & its nearby islands, in the 5th century BC. She was most notable for her alliance with the Persian King Xerxes, & her commanding role in the naval battles of Artemisium & Salamis against other Greek city-states, including Athens, & her subsequent defeat, in 480BC.

Artemisia Gentileschi was an Italian Baroque painter, today considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following that of Caravaggio. In an era when women painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence.

I slightly prefer Artemis, but I really like this version as well. Soft, pretty, feminine, with a lot of cute nicknames for it. I have used it on a character of mine.

I think this name is beautiful. A cute nickname would be Mimi.

I like the name Artemisia, but I'm always reminded of the word "amnesia".

A sweet nickname would be Misia, "MEE-zhah", like the artists' muse Misia Sert.

I think I've heard somewhere that this meant "perfect." I can't remember where, though. I do like the connection to Artemis (mythology is one of my many fascinations), and I think it's just beautiful in general. Although a nickname, that would be something to think about, unless you go with Misa (MEE-zha).

The original Artemisia of Halicarnassus (mother of the 4th century Artemisia mentioned already) was famous for her role in the turning point of the Persian War in Greece. As queen, she used cunning to save herself and her ship at the expense of an ally, but still convinced the Persian king of her bravery and he said, "My men have turned into women and my women into men!"

I like it, but somehow it grates on me a bit. I think it's because whenever I'm talking with someone about names, and I mention my liking for "Artemis", they always say that they don't like it because it's not "feminine sounding". This sounds like an attempt to make it sound more "feminine", even though it's just the feminine form of "Artemisios". Just a little pet peeve, even though it's a lovely name.

Artemisia is a name that sounds very ancient and beautiful to me. I'd say it would be a great name for a daughter if you could think of a nice nickname to go with it!
