Irene, sometimes written as Irini, is a feminine given name of Greek origin derived from εἰρήνη, the Greek word for "peace". In Ancient Greek mythology, Eirene is the goddess of peace, known to be the personification of wealth and harmony. The name has been borne by several early Christian saints, an 8th-century Byzantine empress, and various notable figures throughout history. The name Irene has traditionally been more popular among Eastern Orthodox Christians but was not regularly used in the English-speaking world until the 19th century. Today, Irene remains a popular name worldwide, symbolizing unity, goodwill, and positive sentiments associated with peace.
