In addition to being punished for giving fire to (and favoring) mankind, Prometheus was also imprisoned because he knew a secret that threatened Zeus's reign as Ruler of the Gods. He was told by his mother, Gaea, that a son would be born to Zeus that would overthrow him- and also who the mother was. But no matter how he was tortured, Prometheus knew he was being unjustly punished and he would not reveal the secret.

My middle name is Prometheus, and I recall that my history teacher from sixth grade called me by it. It's nice: strong and refined.

This is used in the title of an episode of The X-Files: The Post-Modern Prometheus, about a Frankenstein-like monster. Which was taken from the original title of Frankenstein, Frankenstein: Or the Modern Prometheus.

Cenk Uygur, a progressive blogger who hosts the (hilarious) internet/radio show The Young Turks and fills in on MSNBC quite a lot, named his son Prometheus Maximus.

I actually really like this name. The nickname Pro is absolutely adorable, too.

This is an extremely cool name, but not a good one for an actual person.

"Prometheus was punished by the gods for giving the gift of knowledge to man. He was cast into the bowels of the earth and pecked by birds."
