I hope that I don't start this going again but there is another way to look
at this name.
A woman who is a linguist was walking through our field and when she saw
LAMIA on a label she immediately said "how nice and appropriate" The reason
was that she translated it to (perhaps Italian) where it meant "THE ONE FOR
ME" or something approximating that.
If you dislike a name try translating to other languages and you may find
something you like.
