Greek Mythology Today
  Mythology is everywhere! Daily you run across instances of words, city names, companies, literary allusions - and the Zodiac, planets and constellations - that take their name or borrow their theme from Greek myths.

Because of your many requests, I have provided a couple of thousand excellent examples to help you get started in your research. Remember, you're literally surrounded by mythology in today's society, whether you realize it or not!

Click on any link below to discover a treasure trove of mythological examples found in today's daily life. The link marked Companies and Groups now has thirteen pages of examples! I have added a real cool new section called Mythology's Influence on the Zodiac, and my American City Names section now consists of ten pages. And check out the brand new Words From Mythology link and the Medical Terms from Mythology!
