- This name derives from the Ancient Greek “rhéa (Ῥέα) “flow, discharge”, by metathesis from “era (έρα)”, meaning “ground”. Rhea was a titan, the daughter of Uranus and Gaia, the mother of Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, and Zeus. As the wife of Kronos (time), she represented the eternal flow of time and generations; as the great mother (Meter Megale), the "flow" was menstrual blood, birth waters, and milk. She was also a goddess of comfort and ease, a blessing reflected in the common Homeric phrase "the gods who live at their ease (Rhea)."
