Meaning: Derived from the Greek word Πόντος meaning 'sea'. In Greek Mythology, he was an ancient, pre-Olympian sea-god, one of the Greek primordial deities. Pontus was the son of Gaia and has no father. According to the Greek poet Hesiod, he was born without coupling, though according to the Roman author Hyginus, Pontus is the son of Aether and Gaia.
