Names of Greek origin are all the rage at the moment, but not many have as fascinating a history as the feminine moniker Jocasta. Many of you will be familiar with the iconic and downright strange story of Oedipus, the King of Thebes. You know, the ancient Greek king who killed his father and married his mother… Well, his mother was called Jocasta! Regardless of its Greek mythological backstory, Jocasta is a name that sounds delightful and has a pretty meaning, “shining moon.” We think Jocasta is due for a 21st-century reinvention, so why not start the trend by giving the name to your pride and joy?
