Comments for ZEUS:

I don't know why people name their sons this anymore, it is from a different religion.

I had friends who were going to name their baby Zeus if it were a boy. That's a lot of name to live up to, if you ask me.

Given Zeus' infamous doings I'd say this would be the equivalent of naming your baby boy Cassanova.

Zeus overthrew his Father Cronus. He then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the gods. He is lord of the sky, the rain god. His weapon is a thunderbolt which he hurls at those who displease him. He is married to Hera, but is famous for his many affairs. He is also known to punish those that lie or break oaths.

Zeus was the name of the dog in a film called "Zeus and Roxanne."

Sounds like zoos.

I love this name, I named my dog this. I think it's a better name for an animal than a human because of who the Greek God Zeus was. That would be a lot to live up to for a boy.

Zeus, a dog?! Agreeing with the first replier to this, I think it just wrong that people name their children this - it's a name from another religion! Sure maybe what Zeus DID was equal to Casanova and a philander but that does not mean he was like that or the name and deity implies those qualities as being everything. Remember he was the king of the gods and whatever he did was looked in reverence just as many people today look upon the Christian Deity.

Zeus is a perfect name for a dog. Just look at the name! If you never knew about mythology and you'd happened to come along this name, you'd think Zeus was the name of a dog! I don't know but that's what I think.

Why wouldn't you give your child a particular name just because it's from a different religion? That makes no sense.
That said, I don't see that it's a particularly good name for a child. It's odd sounding, easy to make fun of, and a lot to live up to.

I do, in fact, know a cockapoo named Zeus. He belongs to some friends of my parents, and their son named him because at the time he was intrested in Greek mythology. The name suits Zeus very much, but a CHILD? Just imagine for a minute your darling Zeus graduating from university. 'Zeus! please come up and collect your diploma!'. Um, sorry, it doesn't work.

This name sounds snobbish, pretentious, pompous, and especially over-the-top. Since it's the name of the king of the Greek gods, I find that it means you're setting up your son for a superiority complex. And let's not forget how many women Zeus had affairs with, angering his wife. It also sounds like a lot to live up to. Can you imagine this name on an official document of plaque? I thought so.

Bad name for a person, being pretentious and that's not great for applying for jobs. But, it'll be cool to name a pet this- though maybe that's just because I have a dog named Juno and it would fit.

It is thought that the word "deus" -god- comes from Zeus.

Also pronounced ZEE-oos.

I know the original Zeus has a bad rep but that doesn't mean the name isn't a good one. Names and their associations change over time. Plus look at the name Willy, a few years ago a perfectly good name, now no one (certainly in England) would use that for their child lol.

I love the sound of the name Zeus, its short and simple but strong. I would love to use it and use Zee as a nickname for it.

Zeus is the name of the supreme god of the ancient Grecoroman world, if u believe in something different, that doesn't mean that Zeus is another God! God is God no matter what one believes. So a little extra respect to that particular name plz.. To give a dog that name.. call him zuus it's ok BUT if you call him ZEFS like Jeff's to Zeff's is the REAL ONE...
