Parents seeking a badass name for their little renegade may have struck gold with Dayanira. This feminine appellation is Greek in origin but is primarily used today in Spanish-speaking communities. A form of Deianira, Dayanira inherits the take-no-nonsense meaning “man-destroyer.” In Greek mythology, Deianira was the second wife of Hercules, who accidentally poisoned and killed him with the Shirt of Nessus. Despite this being a total mistake, Deianira has since held the additional meaning of “destroyer of her husband.” This lyrical name may help your little Dayanira command respect and be set up for a life filled with confidence.
