Meaning:Chalice, pitcher for wine
Calphurnia is a feminine name of Latin origin, full of wisdom, loyalty, and coveted intuition. A variation of Calpurnia, Calphurnia is forever intertwined with Julius Caesar's devoted wife, whose dreams foretold his assassination. In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Calpurnia represents Caesar's humanity, her small but significant role engendering his hidden depths of affinity and care. Emerging from the Latin calpar, meaning "chalice" or "pitcher for wine," Calphurnia is immortalized as a vessel for invaluable insight one would do well to heed.
