What does it mean


The name "Ares" is of uncertain etymology but is believed to have originated from the Greek language. It might be related to the Greek word "ἀρή" (arē), which means "bane, ruin," or "ἀρσήν" (arsēn), which means "male," signifying his strong, aggressive masculine qualities. Ares was a significant figure in Greek mythology and literature, often depicted as less favored among the gods due to his quick temper and aggressive impulses, which were less admired by the Greeks compared to the strategic and controlled aspects of warfare personified by Athena.
