Name Root:
erékhthō > Erekhtheús
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “erékhthō (ἐρέχθω),” meaning “rend, break.” Erechtheus, in Greek mythology, was the name of an archaic king of Athens, the founder of the polis and, in his role as a god, attached to Poseidon, as “Poseidon Erechtheus.” The mythic Erechtheus and the historical Erechtheus were fused into one character in Euripides’ lost tragedy “Erechtheus” (423/22 BCE). A son of Erechtheus carries the name Erichthonius, but Plutarch conflated the two names in the myth of the begetting of Erechtheus.
