Ophelya is a beautiful name for girls. In its derivative Greek, the moniker means “help” and “benefit.” Ophelia, an alternate spelling, has gained quite the following thanks to Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Harriet Beech Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Ofelia, yet another variant, appeared in a 16th-century Italian poem as well. All this to say, Ophelya is a name with no literary ghosts. So you can most definitely adopt the moniker for your little one, who may even be encouraged to write their own story and leave their mark in the world.
