Electra is a feminine name with no shortage of inspiring imagery attached. From the Ancient Greek Ēlektra, Electra means "shining," "bright," or "radiant," painting the picture of a happy, luminous soul. Comic fans, however, may recognise a certain gritty appeal thanks to Frank Miller's legendary creation Elektra Natchios. Electra may be one letter shy from the highly trained assassin, but its illuminating presence is sure to keep baby on the straight and narrow with no shortage of admirers.
