Etymology[edit | edit source]
In Greek mythology, Metis, whose name means 'wisdom,' was a titaness and the subject of one of Zeus' many love affairs. When Metis became pregnant, Zeus heard a prophecy that if Metis gave birth to a son, the child would be more powerful than Zeus. Zeus swallowed Metis as a result, who then gave birth to Athena, the goddess of wisdom, inside Zeus's head. Zeus, suffering a headache, asked Hephasteus, the god of the forge, to hammer open his head. Athena sprang out, fully grown and clothed with her armor.
