Meaning of the name Philomena

Derived from the ancient Greek words φιλος [philos] - "beloved" + μενος [menos] - "power".

Saint Philomena

Saint Philomena is venerated as a virgin martyr Saint of the Catholic Church, said to have been a young Greek princess martyred in the 4th century. Her veneration began in the early 19th century after the archaeological discovery in the Catacombs of Priscilla of the bones of a young woman, which were interpreted as those of a martyr. Nothing else was known about her, but an inscription found at the tomb was taken to indicate that her name was (in the Latin of the inscription) Filumena; corresponding to the English name Philomena.
