Thread: God of Death

  1. #1

    God of Death

    I'm working on a modern day Hades/Persephone story. I figured that I'd call the the Eshne, because it means fire and that's relevant to the story. I don't know what to call the man though. Any advice, maybe a celtic or irish name meaning darkness or death. Something like that, anything that could pass for the name of a god for death. Thanks!

    Thanatos was the god of death in Greek mythology (Hades was the king of the Underworld, so a bit different), so maybe you could call him Thane. Thane means baron or something to that effect, and gives off a dark tone due to Macbeth (Thane of Glamis).

    Yes to the previous poster. Thanatos is the spirit of death and mortality in Greek mythology. And I like her suggestion of Thane. I'll maybe come back with more after I'm done with class :P
