Latinized form of the Greek name Νυμφη (Nymphe) meaning "bride". Nymphe was one of the twelve Horae, Greek goddesses of the hours, who presided over the "bath-hour". In the New Testament, Saint Paul mentions either Nympha or Nymphas in one of his epistles. This name was also borne by an early saint venerated in Palermo, Sicily.
