Cressida is a pretty mythological and Shakespearean heroine name much better known in Britain than it is here-- an imbalance the adventurous baby namer might want to correct. For although the Trojan heroine of that name in the tale told by Boccaccio, then Chaucer, then Shakespeare, didn't have the greatest reputation--she was faithless to Troilus and broke his heart--the name today sounds fresh, crisp and creative.
