About the name Persephone

Persephone is the Greek Goddess of rebirth and the underworld, daughter of Demeter, the grain and harvest Goddess and possibly Zeus. She is also called Kore, the maiden or Nestis. (Gods and Goddesses of the dead were often called by nicknames or euphemisms to prevent their attention falling on the speaker.) She, with her mother, is a central figure in the Eleusinian mysteries. There is some disagreement among both ancient and modern sources as to the meaning of Her name. It may mean "bringer of destruction" or "death bringer or, perhaps "thresher of grain".
