Poseidon Meaning and Origin
Poseidon is a boy’s name of Greek origin, meaning “God of the sea and ocean.” Poseidon is a prominent figure in Greek mythology, known as the god of the sea, earthquakes, and horses. He is one of the twelve Olympian gods, ruling over the vast oceans and their inhabitants. As the god of the sea, Poseidon had control over the waters, including the seas, oceans, and all aquatic creatures. He could conjure storms, calm the seas, and raise or lower the waves according to his will. Poseidon was also associated with earthquakes, believed to be caused by his powerful trident striking the ground. In addition, he was known as the protector of sailors and fishermen. In Roman mythology, Poseidon’s equivalent is Neptune. While there are similarities between the two, their myths and depictions may vary slightly.
