Meaning:Twin of Apollo; Butcher
Your hunt for an unforgettable baby name may have come to an end. Artemis is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin that means "twin of Apollo" and "butcher." In Greek mythology, Artemis was the name of the Greek goddess of the moon, hunting, and chastity. As one of the twelve Olympians, she's one of the most important figures in the Greek pantheon. Artemis lived on Mount Olympus but spent most of her time wandering the forests of Greece, making this name ideal for any free spirit who finds peace in the wilderness. Her Roman equivalent, Diana, might have the more popular name but no one will forget Artemis in a hurry.
