If you know baby will have the voice of an angel, then you may have found the perfect name. A girl's name of Greek origin, Calliope means “beautiful-voiced” and indeed sings off the tongue. Calliope was the eldest of the nine muses in Greek mythology who inspired artists, poets, scientists, and musicians. The muse of eloquent speech and epic poetry, Calliope is often represented holding a trumpet in one hand and an epic poem in the other. Her voice is described as harmonious, and the poets Ovid and Hesiod referred to her as the “Chief of all Muses.” With such high standards to look up to, a name like Calliope may be daunting despite its lyrical beauty and antique vibe. However, baby Calliope can carry their name with pride, knowing it's music to peoples' ears!
