...Pegasus Etymology You can read plenty more about Pegasus, his origins in the mythology and how he got the name, here, here and here. But let's keep going. If this meme is true, then some basic research should show it quite quickly. Claim 2: "DionySUS means Wine of Zeus" One thing is partially true: Dionysus' name does have a connection to Zeus. Except it's not as the image suggests. See here: "Behind the Name: Meaning, origin and history of the name Dionysos. From Greek Διος (Dios) meaning "of ZEUS" combined with NYSA, the name of the region where young Dionysos was said to have been raised" — Behind the Name The "DIOS-" part is the onl...
