This name derives from the Ancient Greek “akrídon (ακρίδων) akrída (ακρίδα) Akrísios (Ἀκρίσιος),” meaning “locust, grasshopper.” A yellow or green vegetarian insect with large legs that allows jumping a long distance. In Greek mythology, Acrisius was the king of Argos, son of Abas and Aglaea, and twin brother of Proetus. When their father died, Acrisius slyly possessed all of the inheritance and expelled his brother. However, assisted by his father-in-law Iobates, Proetus managed to take his share of the kingdom and became Tiryns’ city’s ruler. The name-day is celebrated on November 1, the Feast of All Saints.
