Aoide

Aoide is the name of a figure in Greek mythology, the muse of song. She and her sisters, Melete (practice) and Mneme (memory) were the daughters of Mnemosyne (the Titan goddess of memory) and Zeus, and were apparently the original three muses before the addition of the Nine Muses. Aoide means “song, ode” via aeídō (to sing, chant, praise) which may be derived from a PIE root word.

As for pronunciation, I’ve heard it said as a-oi-dee, a-o-I-dee, or ay-EE-dee; personally, I prefer the former.

Origin: possibly Proto-Indo-European
