Baby Name Persephone

Meaning of Persephone - What does the name Persephone means?
Gender: Girl Name
Origin: Mythology and Astrology
Name Meaning: Borne in Greek mythology by the goddess of spring, a daughter of Zeus and Demeter. She was abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld to be his wife and queen. As a result of Demeter's grief at the loss of her daughter, Zeus decreed that Persephone could spend two-thirds of the year in the upperworld, and the remaining time in the underworld, thus dividing the year into the seasons of growth, harvest, and winter. She is equated with the Roman goddess Proserpina
