Greek name which actually means - "falcon"
In Greek mythology Circe is a minor goddess of magic (or sometimes a nymph, witch, enchantress or sorceress), described in Homer's Odyssey as 'The loveliest of all immortals,' living on the island of Aeaea, famous for her part in the adventures of Odysseus.
By most accounts, Circe was the daughter of Helios, the God of the sun, and Perse, an Oceanid, and the sister of Aeetes, the keeper of the Golden Fleece, Perses, and Pasiphaë, the Wife of king Minos and mother of the Minotaur. Other accounts make her the daughter of Hecate.
Circe transformed her enemies, or those who offended her, into animals through the use of magical potions. She was known for her knowledge of drugs and herbs.
That Circe also purified the Argonauts for the death of Apsyrtus, as related in Argonautica, may reflect early tradition.
