Eros (Greek)/Cupid (Roman)
Youthful god of love.
In earlier mythology, it was said that Eros was hatched from an ancient egg. He was portrayed as having golden wings and four heads, and was also said to be both male and female. In later mythology, Eros became the masculine god of love. It was then said to be that he was the son of the goddess Aphrodite and the god Ares. When the Romans adopted this Greek myth of Eros, they changed his name to Cupid, whom we are familiar with today: the angelic infant that shoots arrows of love into our hearts.
