Hecate (pr. hek-a-tee or hee-kate) is the name of a goddess in Greek mythology often associated with magic, witchcraft, crossroads, the night, moon, and the underworld. Though her name is of uncertain meaning it’s often been associated with Greek hekas meaning “far away” so the name would essentially mean “one who works from afar” or “the far-reaching one”. It’s also been linked to Ancient Greek hekṓn meaning “willing”. In Roman mythology, Trivia is her Roman counterpart.
