Within my classics lessons we have been discussing the various origins of words that i just NEED to share: in my opinion it was really fascinating.
"Giant": Ancient Greek derivative - gigas
"Coronation" (this is my favorite); In Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' Ariadne, when abandoned on a beach by her lover becomes really sad. Bacchus, a God, takes pity on her and throws the crown she is wearing into the heavens. There it metamorphoses into a star, named corona which is said to take its place on the brow of Jupiter.
Cool eh? Well, maybe just me....lol.
