I was reading Withycombe tonight and came across a name I’d never noticed before: Aglaia. Are you familiar with this name? It’s pronounced “ah-GLY-ah” and means “splendor, beauty.” It was the name of one of the three Graces AND a 4th century saint! It seems the French form Aglaé (ah-GLAY) might be more familiar? I like the sound of the French form better, but it does have a very algae look to it, non?
What do you think of Aglaia/Aglaé? Do you know anyone with one of these names?
