Meaning:Born to be strong
Iphigenia is a feminine name with Swiss and Greek roots to match baby’s mystical spirit. Thanks to Switzerland’s strong connection with Greece dating back hundreds of years, it’s no wonder that Greek names are popular here. Translating to “born to be strong,” a name like this will always remind your little one to carry themselves with an air of unbreakable confidence. If you want baby to share your love for Greek mythology, the name also has connections to Iphigenia, the Mycenaean princess. Her story involves her almost getting sacrificed by her father—to earn forgiveness after offending the god Artemis—before being saved at the last minute. If you want to help baby see beauty in all stories, both happy and macabre, the name Iphigenia will make for some long-lasting inspiration.
