Meaning:Brother of Amphion
Zethus is a boy name of Greek origin. Finding fame in Greek mythology as one of the twins responsible for constructing Thebes, Zethus is a name highlighting skill. Zethus and Amphion—an ancient set of twin names—were experts in hunting and playing the lyre, respectively. After building the walls around their city, Zethus married Thebe, who he then named the city after. Zethus was a deeply dedicated father above all else though, and his story ends in tragedy. His son died after an error of Thebe's and Zethus committed suicide out of grief. Baby's story will not be a tragedy though, because the name Zethus at its core is one that highlights loving deeply and working hard.
