Ophélie Name Meaning & Origin

Ophélie

Pronunciation: n/a

Origin of the name Ophelia:

Believed to have been coined by Sannazzaro in 1504 for the name of a character in his pastoral Arcadia. He is thought to have taken it from the Greek ōphelia (help, succor). The use of Ophelia in the English language seems to be a result of its being used for the name of Polonius' daughter, who was in love with Hamlet in Shakespeare's Hamlet.
