About the name Jocasta
In Greek myth, Jocasta was the mother or Oedipus who unwittingly married him after he slew his father. The name may mean "light-hearted" or "playful". I have also seen "shining moon" though it doesn't fit with what I know of ancient Greek names, but this meaning may refer to the fact that one of the moons of Jupiter is named Jocasta.
