What's in a name? Pelagia

Pelagia means "of the sea"; it comes from the Greek word “pelagos”, which means the “open sea”. It was, therefore, an appropriate name for women born on the Greek islands.

We pronounce Pelagia with a soft  <g> (i.e., /dʒ/), as in "Pe-la-gee-a"  
(In Greek,  pronunciation is Pe-la-yeé-a)

Pelagia is a wise and strong woman, ready to deal with the misfortunes of life. She is a capable and very intelligent woman, dependable but sort of introverted.

We agree!
