Philippian Names

Euodia and Syntyche


Another entry into my naming series - search on "names" to get the others. The passage this is inspired by is Philippians 4:2-3, where Paul (and Timothy) entreat these ladies to get along. Neither of those names are currently popular and there are probably several reasons why. But Euodia seems like a Sherlock-style name. The latest movie, Enola Holmes, gives their mother's name as something similar and now I need to look up what it was - Eudoria. Not quite Euodia, but probably inspired by it.

A: My kids are always fighting.
B: What did you expect? You named them Euodia and Syntyche.
