Crion

Crion seems to be a variant spelling of Creon, which is the Latinized form of Ancient Greek Kreon meaning “king” which derives from Ancient Greek kreíōn (lord, master, ruler) via a PIE root word. Creon is the name of several figures in Greek mythology: the name of a king of Corinth, the father of Glauke (also known by Creusa); and a son of the Greek hero Herakles by one of the daughters of Thespius, a Greek king who had fifty daughters each of whom Herakles slept with and fathered a child with.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
