    I thought it was a boys name until you said otherwise.,  

    I don’t love the name for either gender, though.

    Is it for a girl or boy? I couldn’t tell from your post. Love it for a girl.

    I associate Artemis with being a male character in a book series I read as a teen. I didn’t even realise it was the name of a Greek goddess.

    Link to Wikipedia page so you know what I’m talking about.

    I studied Classics and of all the mythological Greeks Artemis is perhaps one of the best. A hunter virgin who didn’t do too many crazy things.

    please say it would be for a girl though. 

    Im not a huge fan of the ancient names, but as you’re Greek as well I’d say go for it.

    I like it, and did know that it was originally a girl’s name. I wouldn’t be surprised if quite a lot of people these days associate it with boys though (I also read Artemis Fowl).

    If you like the mythology roots, I think you’d be better off going with the Roman equivalent- Diana. Artemis sounds a little too fantasy/sci-fi novel for my taste.

    Love it.  I say go for it.  I never thought of it as a boy’s name, I’ve only ever known it as a girl’s.

    I didn’t know the origin but first caught me as a boy’s name and I thought of the nickname Arty. Oddly enough I like it but I’m biased because I like unsiex names for girls or “boy” names because I have one.

    You need to pick what you love. Other people will get over it.

    marmar88 :  I think it’s an okay name, but what matters is that you two love it. I don’t know anyone named Artemis in real life, but there was a male character on The Famous Jett Jackson named Artemus. I’m not sure if the spelling difference is gendered or not.

    It sounds like an action figure you’d find at toys r us.

    I just think of the show “It’s Always Sunny in Philedelphia.”

    I like it. I think it works well since you are Greek, too!
