Name Root:
eteós kléos > Eteoklês / Eteokléēs
In Greek mythology, Eteocles was a king of Thebes, the son of Oedipus and either Jocasta or Euryganeia. This name derives from the Ancient Greek “Eteoklês (Ἐτεοκλῆς) Eteokléēs (Ἐτεοκλέης),” composed of two elements: “eteós (ἐτεός)” (stable, authentic, genuine) plus “kléos (κλέος)” (rumor, report, good report, fame, glory). It seems to derive from the archaic word “Etewokléwēs (Ἐτεϝοκλέϝης).” A Hittite king wrote the Tawagalawa letter to a king of Ahhiyawa around 1250 BC. This letter, of which only the third tablet has been preserved, concerns the activities of an adventurer named Piyama-Radu against the Hittites and requests his extradition to Hatti under assurances of safe conduct. It is so named because it mentions a brother of the king of Ahhiyawa named Tawagalawa, a name suggested by numerous scholars to be a Hittite representation of the Greek name Eteocles.
