Dionysos Is My Middle Name

Mind you that I have no idea how accurate this information is but:

Denise \d(e)-ni-se\ as a girl’s name is pronounced de-NEES. It is of French origin, and the meaning of Denise is “follower of Dionysius”. Feminine form of Dennis, from the Greek name Dionysius. There is an ancient Latin form of the name, Dionysia, but this variant dates back only to the 1920s.

How cool is that! The Liberator is calling. A maenad is rising.
