From Greek Γανυμηδης (Ganymedes)
, which was possibly derived from γανυμαι (ganymai)
"to be glad" and μηδομαι (medomai)
"to think, to plan". In Greek mythology
this was the name of a beautiful boy who was abducted by Zeus
to become the cupbearer to the gods, the successor of Hebe
. A moon of Jupiter is named after him.
