Comments for HADES:

Hades has quite a cool meaning, but who wants a name that is synonymous with hell?

Hades has a cool meaning but it doesn't necessarily relate to the underworld seeing all dead would go to Hades domain when they died and only the bad would be punished. So, when you think about it Hades isn't all that bad of a name. Though in mythology he was said to be quite a mean fellow.

I like the name Hades. Sometimes he was called Pluto and he lived in Hades, or the other way around. He was said to be mean. But really, compared to Zeus, who chained his wife in the sky when she got annoyed with him, Hades doesn't seem that bad.

I'm pretty sure Pluto was the god of the Underworld, but I think the Disney movie messed a lot of people up. Everything I've read says that Hades was only the underworld, not the guy who worked there.

Pluto is the Latin name of Hades. The Greek underworld is also known as Tartarus. Zeus, Poseidon and Hades were dividing up the world by rolling dice. Zeus got first roll, and go the Sky. Poseidon got the Sea. So, Hades was left with the Underworld. He became bitter and cruel in the Underworld.

I like the name Hades but I wouldn't use it as a first name. However, I love it as a nickname for Hadrian.

Hades isn't the god of death (that's Thanatos) but the god of wealth. He just happened to work as the ruler of the Underworld. Then, it's not a evil name at all.

The Disney film mixed it all. The one that hated Herakles wasn't Hades, but Hera. Same happens with the Percy Jackson film: they turned Hades into the bad guy when it was actually Ares.

I think Hades is an AWESOME name, but if I were to have a son I would never name him Hades.
