Eucleia

Origin: Greek

Ευκλεια (Greek)

Meaning: “good glory” or “good repute” from Greek eu meaning “good” and kleos meaning  “glory”.

In Greek mythology, Eucleia was a daimona (spirit) of good repute and glory and, along with her sisters Eupheme (acclaim), Eutheia (prosperity), and Philophrosyne (welcome) were probably known as the younger Kharites (Graces).

In Greek vase paintings, Eucleia was often depicted among the attendants of Aphrodite, representing the good repute of a chaste bride.

Eucleia was also sometimes identified with Artemis.
