Name Origin: Greek
Name Gender: Male
in Greek mythology, the name associated with the hunter which found Artemis bathing and ended up being altered by the girl to a stag and torn to death by his hounds. The name is of unidentified source. Occasionally made use of figuratively in 17c. for "a cuckold" (as a result of his "horns").
It was on Cithaeron that Actaeon was changed into a stag, that Pentheus was torn to pieces by the Bacchantes whose orgies he had been watching, and that the infant Oedipus was exposed.
