Odysseus was a Ancient Greek hero who slew the one-eyed giant Cyclops with the help of several sheep.[1]

Etymology

The name Odysseus was probably derived from the Ancient Greek verb odussomai, meaning "hate", suggesting that the name could be rendered as "the one who is wrathful/hated." This interpretation is reinforced by Odysseus's and Poseidon's mutual wrath in Homer's The Odyssey.
