OFELIA or OPHELIA such a lovely name. there is something so  feminine  according to some of the sites I have used for name meanings Ophelia means help. but  BEHIND A NAME Meaning & History . OPHELIA is derived from Greek οφελος (ophelos) meaning “help”. This name was probably created by the 15th-century poet Jacopo Sannazaro for a character in his poem ‘Arcadia’. It was borrowed by Shakespeare for his play ‘Hamlet’ (1600), in which it belongs to Hamlet‘s lover who eventually goes insane and drowns herself. In spite of this, the name has been used since the 19th century.
