Origin: Greek

Αγαμηδη (Greek)

Meaning: composed of Greek elements aga meaning “greatly, strongly” and medos meaning “plans”, “schemes”, and “counsels”, generally interpreted to mean “very skilled” or “very cunning”.

Agamede was mentioned in passing in Homer’s Iliad, said to know the healing powers of every plant in the world. She was later associated as more of a sorceress-like figure (like Circe and Medea).

In Greek mythology, she was the mother of Dictys by the god Poseidon.

Agamede was also known as Perimede.

It’s pronounced as a-ga-MEE-dee
