I am looking for a cool name that is similar in meaning to 'someone who came back from the dead'. if it's feminine that will be great. I have a laptop that was dead for a long time and I have got it working again. I am thinking to give it a cool name.

You might want to consider "Eurydice, "Inanna," and "Ishtar."

  • But Eurydice did not return from the dead. – StoneyB May 9 '14 at 12:35
  • @StoneyB Well, I guess it was a near miss for her. :-) – Elian May 9 '14 at 12:57
  • Not her fault, though; it was a clear case of operator error. – StoneyB May 9 '14 at 12:59

Revenant; a person who has returned, especially supposedly from the dead.


It's not a female name but Lazarus is the one that comes to mind.



Depends on what you want to use it for. My first thought was Lazarus, as Rueh mentioned, but Phoenix possibly sounds a little more feminine? Not sure whether it technically rises from the dead, but certainly from the ashes.


While not quite a name, peraps The Bride of Frankenstein.

(The Bride does not seem to have a given name, but Elsa Lanchester who plays her also plays Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly. Hey, maybe Wollstonecraft?)
