NAME OF THE DAY

calíope PORTUGUESE / SPANISH

This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Kalliópē ‎(Καλλιόπη)”, composed of two elements: “kalós ‎(καλός)” (beautiful, lovely, virtuous, noble) plus “ómma ‎(ὄμμᾰ) ópsis ‎(ὄψις)” (eye, the eye of heaven) or from “ṓps ‎(ὤψ)” (to the eye, in the face, eye). In turn, the name means “the one who has beautiful eyes, the one who has a beautiful face, look beautiful”. Calliope was the muse of epic poetry, daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and is believed to be Homer's muse, the inspiration for the Odyssey and the Iliad. Calliope also had two famous sons, Orpheus and Linus, by either Apollo or the king Oeagrus of Thrace. She taught Orpheus verses for singing. According to Hesiod, she was also the wisest of the Muses, as well as the most assertive. Calliope married Oeagrus close to Pimpleia, Olympus.
