I named my daughter Erista, which is a combination of "Eris" and "Arista". She has gotten many compliments for her beautiful name and the interesting meaning behind it. It fits her well, it is unique, but is not so off-the-wall that no one has ever heard it before.

I have a friend named Eris but she goes by Erie, which I think is cool, because she's named after the goddess of chaos and she is named after a lake.

Meanings and history of the name Eris: | Edit

Eris is the Goddess of War, Strife & Chaos in Greek Mythology. It is also the name of a planet which was discovered in 2005.

Goddess of dispute and quarrel, who was not invited to Peleus wedding with Thetis, causing her to ruin the party and the peace between men and gods by making a golden apple with the inscription "to the most beautiful" which she threw into the banquet. Because Hera, Athena and Aphrodite all thought they were the most beautiful, a brawl started, leading to the Trojan War.

Eris was sometimes called the Daughter of the Night.
