  1. Since you asked according to Wikipedia the Minotaur actually had the proper name of Asterion (after Minos’s foster-father, literally means starry). Minotaur is Minos + tauros, Minos was the name of the King of Crete and the Minotaur was his wife’s son via a sacred bull (Greek myth is kind of freaky, so Minos is sort of the father but not the “baby daddy”), tauros is just the Greek for bull (like the sign in astrology, which is technically latin but lots of similarities). Minos is also imagined to be a judge in the after life, he even makes an appearance in Michelangelo’s work on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

    Hope this helps.
