rate this name
Name Root:
This name derives from the ancient Greek “Érebos (Ἔρεβος).” In Greek mythology, Herebus, “the god of darkness and shadow,” was often considered a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for example, Hesiod's Theogony places him among the first five beings born from Chaos. Erebus has few characteristics in mythological tradition and Greek literature, but is said to have given rise to several other deities with Nyx; depending on the mythological source, this union includes Ether, Hemera, Hesperides, Hypno, Moirai, Geras, Styx, Charon, and Thanatos.
