NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Agamémnonas (Αγαμέμνονας) Agamémnōn (Ἀγαμέμνων)”, composed of three elements: “ágan (ἄγαν)” (very) plus “ménos (μένος)” (mind, desire, ardor, wish, courage, spirit, vigor) plus “hén (ἕν) énas (ένας)” (a, an, one). In turn the name means “the only very decisive one, the only very resolute, the only very persevering one”. Agamemnon was the son of King Atreus and queen Aerope of Mycenae, the brother of Menelaus, the husband of Clytemnestra, and the father of Electra and Orestes. Mythical legends make him the king of Mycenae or Argos, thought to be different names for the same area. When Helen, the wife of Menelaus, was abducted by Paris of troy, Agamemnon commanded the united Greek armed forces in the ensuing Trojan War.
