Name Root:
alkḗ mḗnē > Alkmḗnē
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Alkmḗnē (Ἀλκμήνη),” composed of two elements: “alkḗ (ἀλκή)” (valiant, strength, power, bravery, prowess, force, defense, guard) plus “mḗnē (μήνη)” (moon). In turn, the name means “might of the moon.” Alcmene was the daughter of king Elektryon in Mycenae and his wife, Anaxo. Alcmene was the wife of Amphitryon and the mother of Iraklis (Hercules) and Iphiklis. When Amphitryon was not at home one day, Zeus took his form and seduced Alcmene, who gave birth to Iraklis (Hercules), son of Zeus, and Iphiklis, son of Amphitryon.
