* These are only the names that resemble existing female names, were previously existing female names, or share etymological roots with existing names, leaving out names you'd find in other major categories (like Aphrodite, which would be filed under the major goddess category). And of course, only the most beautiful; nothing like Daplydice. This list is not comprehensive (there's seriously a trillion different butterfly names).
