High up on the list of baby name trends for 2015 are Greek names, and with hundreds of years of history and mythology, the beautiful coastal country offers no shortage of inspiration. Though some of the goddesses' names are harder to pull off than others (Aphrodite, anyone?), the gorgeous, ancient language provides plenty of wearable baby names for little girls.
Here are 25 of our favorite Greek-inspired baby names for girls:

Though it can be used as a boys' name, we love Alexis for strong and independent girls. Coming from the Greek word alexin (to defend), it can be shortened to something spunky like "Allie" or "Lexi."
This gorgeous take on more common names like Angela or Angelina comes straight from Greek mythology: Angelia is the daimona (or spirit) of messages and tidings, and the daughter of Hermes.
: Aretha is the female version of Ares, who was the Greek god of war. It is strong and commanding and possibly worn best in history by the R&B powerhouse Aretha Franklin.
With an extra syllable to differentiate her from the city of Atlanta, Atalanta is a strong and independent huntress in Greek mythology. This gorgeous name is tragically underused, though potential nicknames like "Annie" and "Lana" are much more popular.
