Miscellaneous Info for Ouranos

  • Additional Info:
    In the Greek Olympian creation myth, Ouranos was the original father of the gods. His name came to mean 'the sky'. However, the name has interesting beginnings rooted in an originally matriarchal society: Ouranos is the masculine form of Urana. Urana is of uncertain meaning - it could mean queen of the mountains, the wind, the summer or wild oxen. The name Ouranos is more commonly found in English in its Latinised form, Uranus.
