Astraeus is a boy's name of Greek origin whose appellation is the perfect balance of grounded thinking and starry-eyed ascension. According to Ancient mythos, Astraeus is a Titan, one of the mighty rulers of the cosmos of which the earth, sea, and sky are made. His name derives from the Greek aster, meaning "star," referencing his stature as the God of stars, planets, and astrology. Though his name means "starry one," Astraeus is also the Titan of the dusk, whose sons include the four winds—the Anemoi—who sweep the earth from all directions, shifting the seasons as they blow. Together with his wife Eos, the goddess of the dawn, Astraeus holds great sway upon the earth—a fine inspiration for growing baby!
