Anticlea is a Latinized Ancient Greek female name meaning “without fame” composed from Ancient Greek elements anti (without; anti-, against) and kleos (fame) both of which derive from a PIE root word. In Greek mythology, Anticlea is the mother of Odysseus and the wife of Laertes who appears briefly as a ghost in Homer’s Odyssey when her son travels to the underworld. Her father, Autolycus, is the son of the god Hermes.
