Drawn to names from Greek mythology, but feel like they’ve all been “done” already? Check out the name Pericles. While it doesn’t actually come from anywhere in the Greek pantheon, Pericles is of Greek origin, and it inspires the same feelings as other popular mythological names. Some say this name means “far-famed,” which is surely a trait many parents dream of for their little one! Pericles is also actually the name of William Shakespeare’s least well-known plays, which might appeal to lovers of the English classics. And for added fun, Pericles was also the name of an evil parrot in an old episode of Scooby Doo.
