Phyllys is a girl’s name of Greek origin. It’s a variant of Phyllis, which means “foliage.” In Greek mythology, Phyllis was a princess who died of a broken heart and was transformed into an almond tree. This tragic yet romantic tale serves as a reminder that good things can grow even from the saddest of situations. In classic poetry, the name Phyllis was often used to represent pastoral maidens, thanks to its connotations of lush greenery. Phyllys is a more modern-sounding alternative to the vintage Phyllis, making it a great choice for a 21st-century baby.
