In Rick Riordan's book The Lightning Thief, the main character is named Perseus Jackson, and is a son of Poseidon.

Sorry, I just can't take this name seriously. The Finnish word for 'ass' is 'perse', and this name cracks me up for that reason. Besides, it is quite a pompous name to use on a child, isn't it?

I love this name! I named my iPod after it. Perseus was a great hero who not only slayed Medusa, but saved the princess Andromeda from a sea monster. Her parents had chained her to a rock in the ocean for a sacrifice and Perseus, who was flying over, froze the sea monster with Medusa's head.

Perseus was the guy in the Clash of the Titans.

He also turned the giant Atlas (who was cursed by Zeus to hold the weight of the heavens on his shoulders) to stone.

I liked the Greek myth, but the name itself isn't all that pleasant. The meaning isn't exactly great, and it sounds close to the snobby-sounding Percy.

In Greek mythology Perseus was the only hero to have a happy ending. I love some of the other hero's names', but for a namesake to have had a happy ending swings this name for me. I would seriously consider it in my top ten boys names.

I really love this name. It's really great and I think Percy would be a cute nickname, or maybe the nickname Perce.
