Are you really even Greek?

I often get this question due to my name being of the Greek mythology background. Often, people assume that I am not Greek, but my parents liked the name or thought I was going to be tough or had some reason why I was named Athena. If you look at me, I do resemble a Greek woman, but many people don’t know the physical characteristics of a Greek woman. And to answer the question, yes I am Greek. My maternal grandmother is 100% Greek.
