Meaning of the baby name IO.

  

IO (Ιώ).  Greek name meaning "the moon."

... Io, the daughter of Inachus, was changed by Hera into a cow... Io was priestess of Hera, and is represented as the cow-goddess Hera... The Pelasgian moon-goddess Io continued to be the old name of the moon at the religious mysteries at Argos... No doubt Io, the later Hera, had at an earlier age, besides cow-horns, a cow-face.  Hera, with her old moon-name Io, had a celebrated temple on the site of Byzantium, which city was founded by her daughter Keroessa... (Archaeologia Aeliana, Society of Antiquaries, v.45, 1877).
