Meaning:She who is milk-white
A name replete in mythological origins, Galatea is a Greek appellation for girls meaning “she who is milk-white.” This poetic title was given to three figures of Greek mythology, most widely known for the statue carved from ivory by Pygmalion and brought to life by Aphrodite. Galatea is also the name of a Nereid—a sea nymph who was in love with the shepherd Acis, and the name borne by the mother of Leucippus. If baby’s twinkling eyes remind you of the Milky Way Galaxy, Galatea offers a dreamy choice brimming with magic and mysticism.
