NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Gorgophónē (Γοργοφόνη)”, composed of two elements: “gorgós (γοργός)” (grim, fierce, terrible) plus “phónos (φόνος)” (murder, slaughter, homicide). In turn the name means “terrible murder”. In Greek mythology, Gorgophone was a daughter of Perseus and Andromeda. Gorgophone is a prominent figure in the mythical history of Sparta, having been married to two kings, Oebalus of Laconia and Perieres of Messenia, and being considered the first woman to have married twice.
