Herodotus is the Latinized form of Ancient Greek Herodotos, made up from the name of the Greek goddess Hera and Greek element dotos (given, granted), essentially meaning “given to Hera” or “granted by Hera”. Although the etymology behind Hera’s name is unclear, it has been associated with Greek heros (hero, warrior), hora (time, season), or haireo (to be chosen). The most famous bearer of the name was an Ancient Greek historian who is referred to as “the father of history”.
