  1. Asteria is the Titaness of nocturnal oracles and falling stars (where we get the word Asteroid from). It’s not a Anglicised version of Astraea (the goddess of justice), but a deity in her own right. A simple Wikipedia search highlights the distinction.
    Still, both are lovely names for a child.
