IRENE.  Latin form of Greek Eirene (q.v.), meaning "messenger of peace."  Usage: America, England, France (Irène), Hungary, Spain.

IRENE.  This pretty name signifying messenger of peace, comes from the Greek Eirene, of which Irene is the Latin form... In mythology, Irene is the name of a goddess of peace and wealth.  Her symbolic flower is the Iris = rainbow or uniter, the messenger of peace, the link between the earth and sky.
    She is said to be the daughter of Thaumas and Electra and is represented as a Virgin-goddess, swift as the breeze and with wings of gold, the messenger of the gods and especially of Zeus and Hera, bearing their commands from the uttermost ends of the earth even as far as the river Styx, and down into the depths of the ocean wave. (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905)
