Oenone (pr. ee-no-nee) is the name of a mountain nymph in Greek mythology, who was the first wife of Paris before he left her for Helen of Sparta. They had a son together, Corythus. When Paris was seriously wounded in the Trojan War, Oenone was the only one who could save him but she refused at first. When she finally relented it was too late and Paris had died, and Oenone killed herself in her grief and regret. The name comes from Greek oinos meaning “wine”.
