Named for an Oread, daughter of the Air and Tellus, condemned by Juno {see planet  (3)} for her chattering to the loss of voice except for purposes of reply. She subsequently fell in love with Narcissus who was driven away by her manner of speech. Gradually she faded away till nothing was left but her voice. (H 9)

The planet was called Titania at first without knowledge of the previous appropriation of the name for a satellite of Uranus by J. Herschel.
