I love the associations with the goddess, Artemis, and the artist, Artemisia Gentileschi. Artemisia seems to have a softness to it, while still being strong. It is unique without being unheard of. There are lots of nickname possibilities, of which Tess and Missi are my favorites.

Artemisia is the feminine form of Artemisios, a Greek name derived from the goddess Artemis. Artemisia is also a genus of plants which includes sagebrush and wormwood, the active ingredient in absinthe.
