    Athena would be fine, unusual.

    Cydonia now... unfortunately, there used to be a swimming pool in my local town called the 'Cydonia Swimming Pool', and that's what the name conjures up for me.

    Athena (in greek mythology) was born in a seriously messed up way. Zeus ate her mother and then Athena was born out of Zeus' head when it was cracked open with an axe.

    It is a pretty name though.

    I actually quite like both names. Athena is nicer, but I think Cydonia is quite pretty too. The only problem is that it's a bit of a mouthful and I don't know what it could be shortened to.

    Yeah, but most Greek gods were born in a messed up way. Think Dionysus..

    Athena's lovely, Cydonia not so much, it just reminds me of the song.

    You don't see many children named after Greek gods for a reason, really.

    My Nahuatl is to the level of a dyslexic four year old, but I think the feminine version of that monstrosity (literally translated as: Our lord the flayed one, the smoking mirrored hummingbird on the left) would be Huitzilopochtezcatlipocxipetolte ca

    Athena - go for it - it's a name. It's a Goddess, so therefore if anyone asks, you can babble on about hoping for wisdom and such - I mean, my name was chosen for its meaning rather than the 'ring' to it - since my forename means "Defender of Men", from the Greek Alexandros.

    Cydonia...you're asking for trouble, as this is the generation where Knights of Cydonia was very popular...and at the worst end of the scale, they'll think you just have a fascination with the region of Mars that bears the same name...
    And Alexandros is derived from Heras (Alex is my first name to)

    I think Minerva is a nice greek name, but it sound a bit old-lady-ish.
    Athena's ok but Cydonia is lame.

    Athena's nice. I thought it said Anthea first, which I don't like, even though they're not much different! :p:

    Athena's nice... I think Chloe, Maia or Rhea are good too, if you want names from Greek mythology.

    No to Cydonia, though. I agree with the people who said it sounds like a chemical.
