Meaning:Winged horse
Pegasus is a famous name of Greek origin. For those who've grown up with Hercules playing as the soundtrack to their childhood or purely lovers of Greek myth, the name Pegasus will feel like an old friend. But for those who don't know, Pegasus was born from the blood of Medusa after she was beheaded by Perseus. Borne from violence and blood, the Greek tale version of this beast is far different to the Disney portrayal. Pegasus was believed to be an immortal, battle-hardened winged horse who would eventually ride into a famed battle between Bellerophon and a fire-breathing Khimaira.
