NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ÊLéKTOR (Ἠλέκτορ) ÊLéKTRON (Ἠλέκτρον) ÊLéKTRA (Ἠλέκτρα)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “êléktor (Ἠλέκτορ) êléktron (Ἠλέκτρον) êléktra (Ἠλέκτρα)”, meaning “amber, shining", "incandescent”. In Greek mythology, Electra was the daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra, and thus princess of Argos. She and her brother Orestes plotted revenge against their mother Clytemnestra and stepfather Aegisthus for the murder of their father, Agamemnon. Electra is the main character in two Greek tragedies, Electra by Sophocles and Electra by Euripides, and has inspired other works. In psychology, the Electra complex is also named after her. Electra's parents were King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra. Her sisters were Iphigeneia and Chrysothemis, and her brother was Orestes. In the Iliad, Homer is understood to be referring to Electra in mentioning "Laodice" as a daughter of Agamemnon.
