LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
PēNē ōPS (-ELōPS) > PēNELōPS > PēNELóPē
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
PēNē (πήνη) ōPS (ὤψ) PēNELōPS (πηνέλοψ / πηνέλωψ) PēNELóPē (Πηνελόπη)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Pre-Greek “pēnelōps (πηνέλοψ / πηνέλωψ) Pēnelópē (Πηνελόπη)”, composed of two elements: “pēnē (πήνη)” (plot, weft, story) plus “ōps (ὤψ)” (to the eye, in the face, eye). The usual meaning is “weaver, duck, some kind of bird”. It should be noted that the second part of the name could be from the Pre-Greek suffix "-elōps (-έλωψ)", often used for predatory animals. In Homer's Odyssey, Penelope is the faithful wife of Odysseus, who keeps her suitors at bay in his long absence and is eventually reunited with him. Latin references to Penelope revolved around the sexual loyalty to her absent husband. It suited the martial aspect of Roman society representing the tranquility of the worthy family. She is mentioned by various classical authors including Plautus, Propertius, Horace, Ovid, Martial and Statius.
