Greek Mythological Names

... in a book's title, or as the author's or a major character's or location's name.

Please note: Only books written, at the earliest, in the Middle Ages -- i.e., at least a millennium after these names used to be household names in ancient Greece. -- Books must be original works, not adaptations/(re)interpretations of ancient Greek source material.

Also, this list is intended for Greek mythological names only; not also for Roman (or other) mythological names, such as Diana, Venus, Minerva, Juno, Neptune, Mars, Pluto, Vulcan, Mercury, or Jupiter.

Bettie☯ I only had a couple to tick on your list but I have still got my thinking cap on.

:O)

ETA Does 'Persephone Books' count - I have read a few of those.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) If it's a series, then, yes ...

Booklovinglady Is 'Ajax' from Greek or Roman mythology....? Sounds more Roman to me, but I honestly can't remember :-0
The Unknown Ajax (currently #75) is on the list, which is what made me wonder :-)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Ajax is from Greek mythology. He's the cousin of Achilles, and a hero of the Trojan War. Found in Homer's Iliad and also a play by Sophocles ("Ajax").

Thanks! I used to read a lot of Greek mythology, as I loved those stories, but it's just too long ago for me to remember now :-)
