Arete is a girl’s name that can be traced all the way back to ancient Greek thought. According to which, arete referred to “excellence” of any kind, meaning a person’s full realization of potential. In Homeric poems, arete is frequently associated with bravery but more so to describe a person using all their faculties to achieve real results. This concept was occasionally personified as a minor goddess too. So, if you, in the slightest way, feel like this is a worthy aspiration to set for baby, by all means, go for this moniker. And just watch for yourself the magic that unfolds!
