Pellagia is a Greek name for girls. More commonly spelled as Pelagia, this beautiful name means "of the sea." It is associated with several early saints and is the feminine form of Pelagius. In more recent times, Pelagia was also the name of Louis de Bernières' heroine in his epic war and romance novel, Captain Corelli's Mandolin. In the film adaptation, Nicolas Cage serenades co-star Penélope Cruz with a moving and romantic piece entitled “Pelagia's Song.” This timeless name, with its sea-inspired symbolism and literary heritage, is certainly a winning choice for romantics and water babies alike!
