Deidamia is the Latinized form of Deidameia, the name of several figures in Greek mythology, the most prominent being the daughter of King Lycomedes of Scyros. She was the lover of Achilles when he hid at the court of Lycomedes disguised as a girl under the alias Pyrrha and they had a son, Neoptolemus (in some versions they have 2 sons, the other being Oneiros). Though the meaning behind the name is uncertain, it could be composed from dêioô (to destroy) and damazo (tame, subdue, control).
