Not Greek/Egyption, but what about Thorbjorn? Doesn't get much cooler than Thunder Bear.

Osiris God of the dead, that's nice

1horatio Sun 26-Jun-16 15:09:59

Hector? Julius? Severin? Ulrik?

Puppfat, wasn't Osiris also killed by his brother (but revived by his wife Isis)?

sonlypuppyfat Sun 26-Jun-16 15:27:58

Yes osiris was chopped up by his brother set and put back together by his wife /sister he was the first mummy

turtlesallthewaydown Sun 26-Jun-16 15:46:55

Themi, short for Anthemios (a renowned Greek architect), also short for Themistocles (Athenian politician).

1horatio Sun 26-Jun-16 17:15:50

OP, I am truly sorry if this insults you. But Osiris is pretty terrible, imo.

cecilelliott Sun 26-Jun-16 20:09:42

Agree that Hector is a great name.
What about:
Lysander?
Orpheus?

Gwen Stefani has an Apollo!

Not Ajax, that's a cleaning product.
