I think Pluton or Plouton should be accepted as a Greek variant of Pluto.

Actually, no. Pluton is an alternate Greek name for Hades. Pluto is just the Latinized version that the Romans used. They also used Dis, or Orcus.

Isn't 'Apollo' the god of the sun and 'Helios' the Greek word for sun? Either way, I think 'Apollo' should still work for 'Sol'...unless I totally have Apollo mixed up with someone else. Any help?

As with most things mythological, it's complicated. They were originally two separate and distinct gods (though technically, Helios was a Titan), but they got conflated sometime around 300 BCE-ish. Similarly, Apollo's sister Artemis was not originally a goddess of the moon, but she got conflated with Helios' sister Selene (Luna, to the Romans.)

Apollo has the same name in Greek and Roman mythology.

Level 55

Apollo is god of the sun, but Sol isn't Apollo's Roman name, seeing as it stays the same. Sol belongs to Helios, Titan (generation before the gods) of the Sun

By your logic, Hecate and Selene's Roman names can be Diana? Just because they are the deities of the same thing, that doesn't mean they are the same gods.

I agree, this is a more correct transliteration of the Greek name and not so uncommon. The same for Here and Haides.

That would/should be Χαῖρε Ζεύς. Or atleast something similar, I might be a bit off, it is better than heil/hail Zeus though.

Aced it with 💯 just because I've read Percy Jackson.

And it's numerous little side books.

And fan fiction.

Pretty sure Gaia was a Titan... if not, she definitely was not a goddess, as she had relations with Ouranos to create the Titans.

"Titans" is just a word to refer to the Gods that ruled the world before the Olympians. So Titans are Gods, just not Olympians. Moreover, Gaia is not a Titan but a Primordial Goddess (before the Titans!)

ItsDaBunnyYT I believe there is a reason for restricting the addition of Apollo, because in Greek it is "Apollo" and in Roman it is still "Apollo." Like Nemesis and Janus (the goddess of Revenge and the God of doorways), Apollo's name does NOT change from the translation from Greek to Roman.

Nemesis is Invidia, Rivalitas, or Invidentia.

Demeter is a greek goddess and one of the Olympians, Roman name being Ceres, maybe add her to the list as she is sort of a female counterpart to Dionysus/Bacchus

The counterpart part was debatable

Kinda strange that when asked to give the greek names of gods, the answer is the latinized spelling. Should be Kronos, Dionysos, Hephaistos etc.

Yes! Finally! Someone who understand this. However, latinization is not Roman equivalent. Those are different. Also, idiots that don't understand wouldn't understand.

This quiz really would benefit from having a yellow box, otherwise it is rather pointless. I think many people have some names floating around, without really knowing what they belong to. I think most people taking this quiz are atleast partly simply listing whatever comes to their mind and see if something sticks
+2
Level 66
Feb 15, 2021
I think the fact that Apollo in Rome is Apollo in Greece is the best possible reason for adding him to this quiz! It would make for an interesting comment thread of people who missed the answer anyway! If you do that, definitely yellow-box the quiz!
