The Gods Are Everywhere!

I had great fun compiling this initial list and adding to it as I uncovered and

discovered more things. One of the most comprehensive lists of its kind ☺

I already knew of a lot of companies, Street names, fictitious characters,

etc with the names of the Ancient Gods. I was to find a great deal more,

on further net searches and upon my own travels. A work in progress, as I

am discovering more and more :) The aim, at first was to find companies, also famous bands, fictitious places, characters, etc in movies/TV etc that shared the names of the Gods (mainly Greek/Roman), without being affiliated with the Gods and Goddesses such as ‘Athena stationery’, Hermes Removals... Apollo Cheese (Actually back then, Apollo was the patron God of Cheese makers ☺) I once saw a car’s license plate which read AP:OLLO and another which read APO11O.

The majority of list contains stuff not really related to the Gods, however, I’ve included at list at the end of TV shows/books/movies/computer games featuring the Gods (and famous creatures and mortals) such as Percy Jackson, Clash of the Titans, Hercules/Xena, Roman Mysteries, Age of Mythology, etc and compiled a list of English words that were inspired by the Gods, eg Herculean (meaning mammoth effort), from Hercules’ legendary strength and labours, Titanic, meaning huge (and the name of the infamous ‘unsinkable’ ship) from the Titans’ gigantic size, etc. Please note that I had not included phone numbers for privacy. Some of the companies may have closed down since I started making this list in 2006.

I have not included most famous people with more common names such as Diana, Helen, etc - no offence to Dianas or Helens of the world (or Helen of Troy) - that would probably launch 1000 more pages … I keep to less common mortal names, such as Ele(c)ktra, Alek(c)tis, Olympia, etc.

Also not included are personal addresses/numbers, etc for security reasons. Also, no offence, but I have not included everyday mortals ☺ with names of the Gods/Goddesses as there are many. I’ve known people called Artemis, Athena, Elysia, Eris, Io, Hector, Phaedra, Persephone, Titania, Ulysses… I’ve also not included people’s personal online handles/ avatars, named after Gods/Goddesses or infamous ancient mortals or creatures.

I’ve also grouped the Gods’ other names (Such as Zeus/Jupiter/ Jove, Hades/ Pluto, Aphrodite/Venus, Hestia/Vesta, Hermes/Mercury, Poseidon/ Neptune/Triton, etc)

The list is organised thus:

Lists of companies, street names, etc named after the Gods 1) Fictitious characters and other fictitious mentions of names of the 2) Gods (Though not the Gods themselves) Famous folks, bands, songs, etc with names of the Gods 3) Planets, moons and other astrological bodies with mythological 4) names GaiaOnline collectibles with nods to the Gods 5) Movies, TV, Books, Operas and computer gamesetc, actually set in 6) the time of Ancient Greece/Rome/Egypt where the Gods and famous mortals star Some words in the English language which originate from the 7) ancient Greek

–  –  –

When I began this list, it amazed me just how many things, companies, famous folks and characters were named after the Gods. One night I stayed up excitedly, finding heaps of companies and things with names of the Gods, before I finally entered the realms of Hypnos and Morpheus and this was well *after* Apollo’s arrival!

It heartened me how ingrained their names are thousands of years later and although the majority of today’s world no longer honour or worship the ancient Gods… I’m sure Apollo has nothing to do with the production of baby prams ;) … Nor that Hades grinds the peppers in the excruciating hot pepper sauce which bears his name…maybe he’s tried it however ;) it’s really heartening that the Gods are still amongst us in spirit and in our everyday dealings with this world, even if most don’t even notice, realise or really think of the Gods directly when they see Venus Perfumes, Athena Hairdressers, or that Nike shoes take borrow their name from ‘Athena Nike,’ Goddess of Victory! So when they see things like Zeus Publications, or a truck with HERMES REMOVALS in big red letters passes them on the street, on some level, even subconsciously, it reminds us that the Gods are still and will always be amongst us. Bless!

Now without any further ado... on with the show!
