Nephele

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on September 11, 2010

Looks reminiscent of nipple.

Besides — that poor kid is going to have to pronounce it to everyone, all the time, for the rest of her life. ¬†Apparently it’s correctly pronounced Nef-uh-lee, but did YOU know that when you first read it? ¬†I sure as hell didn’t, and I bet a lot of you didn’t either.

Actually, I did know how to pronounce it :) it’s greek mythology; she’s a woman made out of clouds who’s a decoy for a creepy guy who wants to kidnap zeus’ wife. eventually she marries a king, but he dumps her for for someone else. Basically, her life is kind of crap; not exactly the best new for your kid… :)
