This name is made up of Greek elements meaning "Violet" and "flower." Since violets are my favorite flowers, This name has special significance. I like it pronounced ee-ANTH, although I've also heard ee-ANTH-e and ee-ANTH-a. It was the name of the poet Shelley's daughter, as well as the name of a poem by Byron.

This name is derived from the Greek ion meaning "violet" and anthos meaning "flower." in Greek mythology, Ianthe was an ocean nymph.
