    n. "Дионисий", a. "дионисийский" (e.g. in "дионисийские мистерии").


    Hephaestus - Hephesian

    n. Гефест, and I don't think there is a specific adjective derived from this name, so Hephesian may be translated differently, depending on the context


    Ra
    Ра. This fellow isn't really a Greek, though. He was kind of adopted by Greeks, I think



    Estrus

    Hmmmm... Are you sure this is a god's name? Never heard of a god Estrus...

    Hercules

    Known in Russian both as "Геракл" (more common) and "Геркулес" (this is a latinized form).

    Note: Hercules Poirot is "Эркюль Пуаро"

    Shogun

    Now, do you mean to say this is a Greek good to???

    Shoguns were military rulers of medieval Japan, who ruled, theoretically "in the name of imperor" but actually held all the power in their own hands.
    The Russian for shogun is "сёгун".

    Zephyr
    Зефир (One of those gods who were responsible for different types of winds)

    Nereid

    Нереида


    Aureate, Frost, Sable

    Hawk-Eye, Ember, Ivy

    Fa?ade, Sandman,

    Blade, Equine, Knave, Absinthe


    No clue about this guys. Of course, all these words do mean something in Russian, but I do not recognize them as name of gods, Greek or otherwise.. Where did you find this names, anyway? Some cartoon serial?
    :P

    I know

    Those aren't greek gods. I just made the title of Greek Gods, and was wondering if anyone could translate the rest. That's all. I those names were not from a serial? series, maybe? But just random words I would have like to know.

    I recognize a number of them as comic book characters, and dude, I hate to tell ya, but I'm pretty sure Neil Gaiman hasn't been translated to Russian yet.

    That's the definition I used.

    That's the definition I used. But I guess 'series' would indeed be a better word here
