Meaning & History

Means "grim murder", derived from Greek γοργός (gorgos) "grim, fierce, terrible" (also compare Gorgo) combined with Greek φονη (phone) "murder, slaughter, carnage". For the latter element, also compare the Greek noun φόνος (phonos) "murder, slaughter" and the Greek verb φονεύω (phoneuo) "to murder, to kill". In Greek mythology, Gorgophone is the name of a daughter of Perseus and Andromeda.
