Cassandra

If your sweet little Cassandra tells you something, you better listen, and listen good. In Homer’s epic poem The Iliad, King Priam’s daughter Cassandra foretold the ending of the Trojan war, but her warnings were tragically ignored—and we all know how that ended. This mystical-sounding name had its heyday in the 70s but has fallen far from grace since.
