Meaning:Unleashing of horses, freer of horses
Hippolyte is a girl’s name of Greek origin. In Greek mythology, Hippolyte was the queen of the Amazons, a tribe of female warriors who matched men in strength and ability. She was also the daughter of the god Ares and wore his zoster, or war belt, which the hero Heracles stole from her. From the Greek word hippos for “horse” and luo meaning “to lose” or “set free,” Hippolyte translates to “unleashing of horses” or “freer of horses.” The fear and exhilaration that this image elicits perfectly encapsulates the warrior queen’s spirit. A powerful choice, the name will inspire baby Hippolyte to grow into a strong and fearless young woman.
