Meaning:Womb; Dolphin; From Delphi
Delphi is a girl’s name of Greek origin, possibly deriving from the Greek word delphys, meaning “womb.” It may also be a shortened form of Delphine, which comes from the Greek word delphís, meaning “dolphin.” Alternatively, it may mean “from Delphi,” referring to the ancient Greek placename. In Ancient Greece, Delphi was a sacred place considered to be the center of the world. A stone monument called the omphalos marked what was viewed as the earth’s navel. Delphi was also the seat of the Pythia, the famous oracle who gave prophecies while under divine possession by Apollo.
