Really surprised by the lack of mention of rape on this page. Seem like every mythological woman raped by him gets that added to the page. Very sexist.

lyssxrjq Says:


It's pretty sexist that Io's page says "raped by Zeus" but Zeus's page doesn't say "rapist of Io."

Just like his namesake.

Baby Name Addict Says:


I think a child called Zeus would struggle to get a job and be taken seriously. If you are desparate yo give this name to your child then give them a sensible middle name.

I don't think Zeus is much to live up to at all. A philandering, rapist, adulterer isn't the best namesake in my book. I love Greek mythology, but come on, there are WAY better choices than Zeus!
