Eurydice was the name of more than one mythological female. First there was the famous Dryad who was loved by Orpheus (whose tale came to be told in several operas, plays and films), then there was Eurydice the mother of Danaë, thirdly there was the wife of Creon, and fourthly (and by no means last) there was Eurydice the daughter of Adrastus and wife of Ilus, king of Troy.

The popular name means literally 'wide justice', from eurys, 'wide' and dice, 'right', 'justice', so thus loosely really means 'queen' or 'princess'. In this respect it is more of a 'title' name, like Creusa.
