Thalia

Thalia is the name of several figures in Greek mythology, including one of the nine Muses who presided over comedy and idyllic poetry, and the name of one of the three Graces. It’s the Latinized form of Ancient Greek Thaleia meaning “to flourish, bloom, to be verdant” via thallo (to bloom, sprout; to grow, flourish, thrive). Thalia is also the name of a genus of tropical plants found in aquatic or marshy habitats, as well as the name of a genus of salps (filter-feeding marine animals).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
