Otherworldly Words: Echo


echoMay is named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was believed to influence growth and was known as a nurturer. In the theme of the month, I’ll look at four other words, with an otherworldly connotation, that derive from Greek mythology.

First up is echo. While no longer capitalized, the word comes from the Greek character Echo, who pined away until she become nothing more than the return call of other’s voices. It’s a tragic love tale, and one that still haunts us every time we scream out the name of someone we miss and our own words taunt us with their return.

Learn more about Echo and unrequited love.
