About the name Galinthias
In Greek myth, Galinthias was either the friend, servant or midwife of Alcmene, mother of Heracles. She foiled Eileithyia & Hera's plot to delay the birth by tricking Eileithyia by announcing that the boy had already been born. She was transformed into a pole cat (a type of weasel) as a punishment and Hecate still keeps her as a familiar pet and companion to this day.
I am having trouble with the etymology of this. I see thia = maybe "god/dess" OR anthos= "flower" perhaps and gala (maybe?) = "milk". Something like milky/white flower.
Although this name is worn by a woman in the myth, it can also be used for a boy.
