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!
