Perseus

Meaning name Perseus
Greek myth name of the founder of Mycenae and the hero who killed the half-mortal gorgon Medusa. If Greek, the first element of the name might have derived from the word pertho, meaning "to sack, to destroy." And according to Carl Daling Buck in his Comparative Grammar of Greek and Latin, the -eus suffix found in so many Greek names is typically used to form an agent noun. If so, Perseus was a "destroyer" by profession, i.e. a "soldier," which is a fitting name for this legendary hero.
