aspasia F

greek
ASPáZOMAI

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “aspázomai (ἀσπάζομαι)”, meaning “sweet treat, warmly welcomed, warmly accepted”. Aspasia was a Milesian woman who was famous for her involvement with the Athenian statesman Pericles. Aspasia was born in the Ionian Greek city of Miletus (in the modern province of Aydın, Turkey). Little is known about her family except that her father's name was Axiochus, although it is evident that she must have belonged to a wealthy family, for only the well-to-do could have afforded the excellent education that she received.
