If parents could will their child’s future by virtue of their name, there would probably be many more babies named Harmony. The musically inspired name ultimately comes from the Greek “harmonia.” In Greek mythology, Harmonia, the love child of Ares (god of war) and Aphrodite (goddess of love), was given the power to bring people together and was considered the goddess of happy marriages, brotherhood, sisterhood and of course harmony. The name made it onto network TV when it was used for a character on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
