Greek Trivia

Q: Who was the Greek goddess of victory?

      A. Venus
      B. Nike
      C. Athena
      D. Aphrodite

A. The correct answer is ...... Nike! Many modern names stem from Nike, such as Nick, Niki, Niko, Nicole, etc.

- Venus (a trick answer) is actually the Roman goddess of love, associated as the equivalent to the Greek goddess Aphrodite.
