Meaning & History
Means "she who can" or "the capable one" from Greek δυναμένη (dynamenê), a participle of the verb δύναμαι (dynamai) "to be able, to have power, be strong enough". In Greek mythology this name was borne by one of the Nereids. It was later employed by Christopher Fry for a character in his comic play A Phoenix Too Frequent (1946), set in ancient Greece.
