Meaning:God of the Underworld
If you haven't seen Hercules or read any of the Greek mythology, then you are sincerely missing out on some essential characters. Hades is the god of the underworld and incidentally the muse for video games, musicals, movies, books, art, and so much more. Though the name actually means "the Unseen", Hades is ironically one of the most celebrated Greek gods in history.
