Very pretty! Cassiopeia is a wonderful name, I called a puppy Cassiopeia!

I was thinking about writing a book series, where the girls all have names associated to the galaxy: Luna, Sunny, Lyra, Astrid, Venus, Stella, and Nova; and I needed one more to have eight all together. Now that I think of it, this one is perfect! I would nickname the character Cassie. Pretty name!

I absolutely adore this name, it is my favourite girl's name. I love the fact that it is a star constellation and that it originates from a Greek myth. There are different ways of pronouncing the name, I first came along the name in a book and pronounced it as 'CASSIE-O-PEE-UH' But then went on to learn that there are different ways of pronouncing it such as 'CASSIE-A-PEE-A' and 'CASSIE-UH-PEE-UH'.
I personally drift between both 'CASSIE-O-PEE-UH' and 'CASSIE-UH-PEE-UH'
I have come to find that most British people also do that but the majority of American people pronounce it as 'CASSIE-UH-PEE-UH' it does sound lovely with their accent.

This is my daughter's name. She changed the pronunciation from Cassio PEE a to Cassio PAY a. She normally goes by Cassie but is starting to go by Cassiopeia more and more. Although she has never used it I also really like the nickname Cassio. She is very feminine, hard working for her grades (over 4.0), clever (one of the meanings of Cassie/Cassi was clever and I liked that a lot and that fits her well), very artistic, kind. She was always meant to be a Cassiopeia.

This is a phenomenal name! It's quite a mouthful though, and will be misspelled and mispronounced. I love the nickname Cassie.

In the series Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, one of the Incorrigibles was named Cassiopeia.

It's very beautiful. Cassia or Cassie make good nicknames too, but if I were named Cassiopeia, I'd want to be called by my full name.

In Romania, this name is pronounced Ca-see-o-pay-ah.
I much prefer this pronunciation. I'm not too keen on Ca-see-o-pee-ah, but the name is gorgeous anyway.

My name is Cassiopeia. I have never met another with my name. My parents called me Cassie for short. I used to hate it as a child because it was so different. I got teased a little but not so much in a bad way. I love it now because it is so different and I get many compliments.

The name Cassiopeia is used in the great game 'Ni No Kuni' and the character was the queen of her kingdom. I also love the name and if I have a daughter I am planning on calling her Cassiopeia with the pronunciation of 'Cass-ee-o-pee-a'.

I like this name, it sounds elegant and regal. I prefer the nickname "Cassia" over "Cassie", I don't know why, it just sounds better to me.

Sounds rather arrogant and pretentious on a child. I can imagine a girl with this name being very full of herself.

Singer Sara Bareilles has a lovely song called "Cassiopeia" that's about the constellation.

Cassiopeia “Cassie” Sullivan is the main protagonist from the novel “The 5th Wave” and the upcoming movie with the same name.

I've always pronounce this name like cah-see-OH-pee-ah. That's how we were taught to say it in English class when learning mythology and in my astronomy class when looking at the constellation. It's a very beautiful name though, I would love to use this for a little girl someday and maybe sometimes call her Cassi.

I received a Greek Mythology encyclopedia, and this name was listed as just Cassiope. I read on Wikipedia "Her name in Greek is Κασσιόπη, Kassiope". Not sure which I like better. Cassiopeia is really pretty and girly. Cassiope has a nice sound to it too, like popular Penelope with the nickname Cassie. I'm not sure people would pronounce Cassiopeia right, but it's beautiful and different which I love.

In Denmark the pronunciation would be, cass-yo-'PEYE-a. Eye pronounced like an eye or the letter I.

I much prefer this pronunciation.

I think this is a pretty name, but I'd prefer to pronounce it "cass ee OH pee a"--emphasis on the "O".

I always thought this name was pronounced kas-ee-o-PAY-ah.

The French version is Cassiopée, pronounced Cassio-"pay". I like it a lot, better than Cassiopeia.

This name is great, I totally love it, and would consider it for a future daughter. It's just so pretty and feminine and strong. The only downside is that it's so long and I don't like any of the nickname choices.
Likeyeahwhatev  8/2/2009
I pronounce this name cassio-PAY-ah, so ne pee sound in there. I don't mind this name but it would get shortened to Cassie which I really dislike. I don't think that it would be good to give this name to one sister & Andromeda to another as the original bearers were mother & daughter, it's like calling siblings Romeo & Juliet! Just icky!?!

Cassiopeia has to be one of the most beautiful names I've ever heard. I wish wish wish it was my name! It's so strong, beautiful and elegant, plus there are so many nickname opportunities (Cass, Cassy, Pia, etc!) There could, of course, be problems with spelling and pronunciation, but that wouldn't put me off. Any girl called Cassiopeia is INCREDIBLY lucky to have such a perfect name!

There was a character in the 1970-80's television show "Battlestar Galactica" named Cassiopeia (portrayed by Lorette Spang-McCook). It was pronounced ka-see-O-pee-a.

I think any name containing the word "pee" should be avoided. The playground can be hell, folks.

Joanna Newsom has a song called Cassiopeia.

Oh my God how cool it would be to have two daughters named Cassiopeia and Andromeda!

Cassiopeia boasted that she was more beautiful than the Nereids who complained to Poseidon. Poseidon sent a sea monster and demanded that Andromeda, Cassiopeia's daughter, be sacrificed to it. Luckily, Perseus came along and saved Andromeda. Cassiopeia was made a constellation.

It sould also be noted that Cassiopea worshipped the ground her daughter walked and openly bragged about Andromeda's beauty in front of the Gods. This ended in Andromeda being offered to the Kraken as a sacrifice in order to beg Hera for forgiveness.
